California Attorney General drops greenhouse gas suit against carmakers
In the nearly three years since that suit was filed, much has changed. Courts had upheld the suit when the automakers filed for dismissal, the EPA said no to the waiver request, and some people in Washington changed jobs.
One of the results of that last change was the decision by the federal government to essentially adopt the proposed California standard at the federal level. With California getting what it originally wanted, the lawsuit has been deemed unnecessary by California attorney general Jerry Brown and thus withdrawn.
