Natural Resources Damage Litigation

Lorman

Description

Natural resource damages have moved to the forefront of environmental law. Federal and state natural resource trustees have substantially stepped up their activities with respect to the natural resource damage assessments process and for recovery of alleged damages.

Both federal and state resource trustees are blazing new ground in assessment and enforcement activities. This teleconference will cover cutting-edge issues of practical concern related to natural resource damage litigation and negotiations concerning how trustees are approaching the NRDA process.

You'll gain a clear understanding of the latest developments in this complicated area of the law. In light of the coming change with a new federal administration in Washington, D.C., NRD activities may escalate even further - making this vital teleconference even timelier.

  • NRD Sites to Watch
  • Update on Natural Resource Damages Case law
  • Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma v. Blue Tee Corp.
  • New Jersey Litigation
