Questions after Judge's Bombshell Ruling on Drilling Ban

Hosted by

Yesterday, Federal Judge Martin Feldman ruled that the moratorium on 33 exploratory wells was arbitrary-based on the unsupported assumption that what happened to Deepwater Horizon would happen to other wells too.  Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said he'd appeal, but also promised a new order that would effectively reinstate the moratorium. Today, crews had to remove the cap that's been siphoning off some of the oil from the ongoing gusher. Stephen Power is covering the story for the Wall Street Journal.
