Obama loses his court appeal to reinstate a six-month deepwater drilling moratorium pending appeal.
In a 2 to 1 ruling the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the governments move to stay the judge decision lifting the moratorium citing that the government failed to prove “a likelihood of irreparable injury if the stay is not granted.”
The Obama Administration is not one to let diversity get in the way of its agenda. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has stated he is preparing to block deepwater drilling regardless of the court decision.
Can Obama not take no for an answer?
