This case note examines the Supreme Court's unanimous ruling in Sackett v. EPA, and how it has a displayed a broader effect on agency law than we might have suspected. On the environmental side, there is potential for significance, especially in the Sixth Circuit. Yet, the EPA is generally operating under the same rules. Does this case force us to reconsider Rapanos as Justice Alito suggests? Perhaps, but we are not yet sure where the ramifications of this decision will end.
