Once more with feeling, federal Judge Martin Feldman has, again, come down the Obama administration. This time Feldman ordered the contemptuous and lawless Obama crew to act on five deep water drilling permits within 30 days, and says their delaying tactics are “unreasonable, unacceptable and unjustified.”
In a case brought by the drilling company Ensco, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana Judge Martin Feldman ruled that the four to nine months the company has waited for a decision on the permits it has a stake in is simply too long.
Feldman acknowledged the difficulty the administration’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement has had in implementing new regulations in the wake of the BP oil disaster, but said the time has come to act.
“The Court therefore orders that [the bureau] is required to act on the five pending permit applications within thirty days of this Order and simultaneously report to the Court its compliance,” Feldman wrote in his ruling, issued late Thursday.
The Obama administration is also ignoring Florida federal Judge Vinson’s ruling that ObamaCare is unconstitutional. The lawless Obama bunch are moving ahead anyway. You may remember legal advice from Mark Levin, who suggested that “contempt of court” claims should flood the court, submitted by the 26 states who joined the Florida case.
