The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas denied OceanConnect LLC’s motion November 29 to refile its claim that mismanagement by the Environmental Protection Agency allowed fraudulent renewable fuel credits to enter the marketplace. The judge ruled that alleging that the agency mismanaged the program would not resolve breach of contract claims against the energy broker. Renewable fuel credit trading is part of the renewable fuel standard program under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.
