No Moratorium for Drilling Moratorium

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals told District Court Judge Martin Feldman to conduct hearings on both of the administration's drilling moratoriums in order to prepare a final case for the Fifth Circuit to resolve. Bloomberg has a story here. Feldman had earlier blocked the administration's first moratorium, prompting a second drilling ban which some called a carbon copy of the first. The case is Hornbeck v. Salazar. Judge Feldman's first decision is here.
