Environmental citizen groups are become increasingly aggressive in filing lawsuits under the citizen-suit provisions of the Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and other environmental laws. Climate change impacts, coal and fossil fuel extraction, and hydraulic fracturing are just a few of the industrial activities in the crosshairs for citizen suits in the perceived reduction or absence of government enforcement.During this webcast, you will learn the basic theories of citizen-suit litigation, including what to expect in a citizen suit, how to prepare, how to respond, and lessons learned from recent cases.
