The radical Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) published a “report” (i.e. propaganda) in 2017 that made the preposterous claim that New England customers have overpaid utility bills by $3.6 billion due to collusion between the natural gas and electricity industries (see EDF Accuses New England Gas Utilities of $3.6B Market Manipulation).

After years of litigation, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit has just affirmed a lower court ruling that tossed out this sham lawsuit based on a sham report.
