John Cruden and Nessa Coppinger Speaking at ABA Program on Environmental Enforcement in 2018

John Cruden and Nessa Coppinger (Principals, Washington DC) will moderate two separate panels during the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation, Environmental & Energy Committee's Fifth Annual Environmental Enforcement Update, "Environmental Enforcement in 2018: Perspectives From Federal and Non-Federal Stakeholders Regional CLE Program." The program will take place on November 13 in Washington, DC from 1:00-6:30 p.m.

The event will focus on the current state of EPA enforcement and how it may affect environmental cases that are taken to court, and will feature key litigation and enforcement stakeholders from across the federal and non-federal legal landscape. 

John will moderate a panel, "DOJ and EPA Alumni on Recent Developments in Environmental Investigations and Enforcement," a discussion by DOJ and EPA alumni/insiders on recent federal environmental developments.

Nessa will moderate the panel, "Environmental Enforcement Without U.S. EPA?" Panelists will discuss how states, public interest groups, trade associations, and other stakeholders may attempt to fill or take advantage of the potential void created by an absence of aggressive EPA enforcement of federal statutes. Panelists will provide perspectives from the states, NGOs, and other potential plaintiffs and their enforcement efforts in the current political climate.
