Court rules EPA was wrong

| 12/16/2013

A U.S. Court of Appeals has thrown out the rule that the Environmental Protection Agency used when it allowed Navistar to sell engines that didn’t meet 2010 federal emissions standards.

Competitors like Daimler and Volvo said the EPA was being unfair since they had invested millions to comply with the standards.

The court ruling shouldn’t affect Navistar, which has since gone to a compliant engine. But it could affect how the EPA deals with noncompliance in the future.
