For now, it is tough to tell what impact the Hunter decision will have on FERC's current and future enforcement work, Clark said.
"I think it might be a bit of a stretch to say that it impacts all of these cases that we have," he said, noting that Hunter was not trading in the physical markets that FERC oversees.
"With regard with what may happen in the future, I think that we don't know because we don't know what exact cases may be out there," he said.
