John S. Stapleton was mentioned in Law360’s coverage of Yaw v. Delaware River Basin Commission regarding LSSC's successful defense of the Delaware River Basin Commission’s ban on high-volume hydraulic fracturing (i.e., fracking) in the Delaware River Basin.
Affirming the District Court's dismissal of claims alleged against LSSC client Delaware River Basin Commission, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals found that certain Pennsylvania legislators, the Pennsylvania Republican caucus, and certain municipalities lacked standing to challenge the Commission’s ban on fracking.
In 1961, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware and the United States enacted the interstate-federal Delaware River Basin Compact to provide for their joint administration of the water resources of the Basin.
