  • Justice Thomas delivered the judgment of the court, with opinion. Justices Freeman, Garman, Karmeier, and Burke concurred in the judgment and opinion. Justice Theis dissented, with opinion, joined by Chief Justice Kilbride. The production of steel in electric arc furnaces generates toxic waste.
