Mark Farley Quoted on Obama-Era Environmental Regulations in Bloomberg Environment

Firm News | August 28, 2018

Environmental and Workplace Safety head Mark Farley was quoted in a Bloomberg Environment article on how a recent US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit could result in the implementation of chemical facility safety rules enacted by the Obama administration. While the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could take a lax approach to enforcement of the safety standards, Mark noted that companies could still face legal peril. Mark explained that the Clean Air Act allows for citizen suits against violators, meaning that individual plaintiffs or advocacy organizations can file suit if they can prove companies are not in compliance with the regulations.
