Auto industry wants portions of emissions case kept secret.
At issue is a lawsuit by three Vermont auto dealerships and major industry players, including DaimlerChrysler Corp. and General Motors Corp., against three Vermont officials in the Agency of Natural Resources who are responsible for instituting emissions regulations.
Trade secrets and confidential business practices deserve protection, industry attorneys argued in court papers filed last in US District Court in Burlington.
One of Vermont's lead attorneys on the case, Scot Kline of the Environmental Protection Division of the Attorney General's Office, said his team received the industry's request and is preparing an answer.
