Richard Davis and Drew Silton Speaking in ACC Webinar on Ninth Circuit's Maui Decision
Principal Richard Davis and Associate Drew Silton (Washington, DC) will speak in a webinar hosted by the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC). The webinar is titled "WOTUS, Schmotus: Ninth Circuit’s Maui Decision Rains Risk on Everyone" and will take place from 1:00pm to 2:00pm (EDT) on April 3, presented in conjunction with Beveridge & Diamond's sponsorship of ACC's Environmental & Sustainability Committee.
The webinar will unpack EPA’s pending Request for Comment on whether the Clean Water Act should regulate those discharges and, if not, under which other programs such discharges should be managed. It also will describe the recent Ninth Circuit case law that drove the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to act, the Agency’s possible direction after it digests public comments, the likely future trajectory of this issue in the courts, and some steps corporate counsel should consider to protect their interests.
