A three-judge panel of the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued a decision Friday dismissing on technical grounds two challenges to the Environmental Protection Agency's decision about two years ago to approve the introduction of gasoline blended with ethanol at the ratio of 15%, or E15.
The 2-1 decision, written by Chief Judge David B. Sentelle, said the petitioners, who are trade associations whose members are part of the petroleum and food industries, had "no standing to bring this action" and therefore, "We dismiss all petitions for lack of jurisdiction."
