A federal judge has ruled that the Obama (*DfOaLG) administration’s intransigence on issuing oil drilling permits in the Gulf of Mexico is in contempt of an order made in 2010:
Interior Department regulators acted with “determined disregard” by lifting and reinstituting a series of policy changes that
“Each step the government took following the court’s imposition of a preliminary injunction showcases its defiance,” Feldman said in the ruling.
