John Cruden and Tim Sullivan Speaking at ABA SEER National Enforcement Conference

Principals John Cruden (Washington, DC) and Tim Sullivan (Baltimore, MD) will speak at the American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (ABA SEER)'s National Enforcement Conference, taking place in Washington, DC on November 12, 2019. The program will explore five timely and informative topics including: criminal enforcement, EPA national compliance initiatives, CERCLA enforcement, enforcement reforms and methods, and the role of the courts in enforcement.

John will participate in a panel discussion titled “EPA’s National Compliance Initiatives: Understanding EPA’s Enforcement Priorities in 2020–2023” from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. (ET). The panel will discuss each of the 2020–2023 NCIs and touch on the status of core enforcement efforts for previous NCIs. Attendees will learn about the noncompliance that led to the selection of these NCIs, EPA’s goals for the NCIs, and the use of the full range of enforcement and compliance assurance tools in these NCIs to foster compliance and correct noncompliance.

Tim will participate in a panel discussion titled "The Judiciary and Environmental Enforcement: New Precedents, Pending Cases, and Trends in the Courts" from 2:30 to 3:45 p.m. (ET). Panelists will share insights and perspectives on recent and anticipated decisions at the Supreme Court and elsewhere across the federal courts, providing attendees with a roadmap to navigate potential environmental enforcement issues related to specific client and/or stakeholder matters.

CLE credit will be available in some jurisdictions.
