ABSTRACT
The article discusses court case on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) definition of natural event. It was used in the Clean Air Act's (CAA) exceptions to air quality monitoring but was not subject to judicial review. The court discovered that the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) could not defy the final rule and did not decide on NRDC's main challenge. It notes that a tighter reading of the statute and a pollution protection afforded by the CAA could benefit public health.
