Supreme Court declines Miccosukee Tribe's petition in EPA case
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida.

The tribe fought for years to prevent the Florida Water Management District from pumping polluted water into the Everglades. But the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals said a new Enviromental Protection Agency regulation permits the activity.

The tribe is based in the Everglades.
