For the Defense Publishes Critique of Environmental Citizen Suits Authored by Beveridge & Diamond and Waste Connections

Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., April 22, 2014

For the Defense magazine, the flagship publication of the Defense Research Institute, the leading organization of corporate defense lawyers, published in its current issue a detailed examination of citizen suits under the federal environmental laws, particularly the Clean Water Act.  The article, co-authored by Beveridge & Diamond principal Richard Davis and Waste Connections General Counsel Pat Shea, provides a primer on citizen suits, case studies of the limited environmental benefits from this litigation, and a roadmap for reform of the statutes that have led to numerous expensive and unproductive citizen suits.  Beveridge & Diamond lawyers Jimmy Slaughter, Lily Chinn and Steve Sarno assisted with the article.
