      EPA mine water-pollution guidelines thrown out.

      Dealing another blow to the Obama administration's crackdown on
      mountaintop removal mining, a federal judge on Tuesday threw out new
      federal guidance that aimed to reduce water pollution from Appalachian
      coal mining operations.

      U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton ruled that the U.S. Environmental
      Protection Agency overstepped its authority under federal water
      protection and strip mining laws when it issued the water quality guidance.
