D.C. Circuit throws out EPA rule that helped Navistar

Company can no longer pay fines in order to sell noncompliant diesel engines

Navistar International Corp. is having engine trouble.

On Tuesday, the D.C. Circuit struck down an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) interim final rule (IFR) that allowed the Illinois-based truck and engine manufacturer to pay fines in exchange for the right to sell heavy-duty diesel engines that don’t comply with the agency’s latest pollution standards or the Clean Air Act. The rule allowed Navistar to pay about $2,000 for each engine that failed to meet the EPA’s regulations for nitrogen oxide emissions.
