The Daily Journal quotes Lecturer in Law and Director of Stanford University's Environmental Law Clinic Deborah "Debbie" Sivas in a story about the Supreme Court's landmark ruling that says the EPA can regulate carbon emissions from cars.

Sivas on what the public might see next: "My guess is we're going to see some congressional action on this."

Sivas on the significance of the Supreme Court giving plaintiffs standing to sue for environmental harms: "The standing part of it is almost as important as anything in the decision. It affirms the ability of citizens to get into court when they think the government is not fulfilling its mandates."
