WASHINGTON, April 28 A U.S. appeals court on
Friday granted a Trump administration request to put on hold a
legal challenge by industry and a group of states to former
President Barack Obama's regulations aimed at curbing greenhouse
emissions mainly from coal-fired power plants, rules that the
Republican president is moving to undo.
A 10-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia Circuit granted the request to put the
litigation involving the regulations known as the Clean Power
Plan in abeyance for at least 60 days while the administration
plans its next steps.
