Steven Solow Commented on Flint Criminal Probe

Firm News | March 15, 2016

Steven Solow, co-head of the Environmental and Workplace Safety practice and co-head of the White Collar, Investigations and Compliance practice in the firm's Washington, DC office, commented on the US Department of Justice's investigation into the Flint, Michigan water crisis in Bloomberg BNA’s Daily Environment Report. Steven stated, "I think the public expects the government to take a hard look here just as they would if all the individuals were in the private sector. That doesn't mean it should necessarily come out one way or another. What seems simple at first may prove more complex." He indicated that it makes sense for state and federal prosecutors to work together in the investigation into what people knew, when they knew it, what obligations they had to reveal information and whether those obligations were met. He also noted the limits of the Safe Drinking Water Act for criminal enforcement. ("Lawyers: Flint Criminal Probe Likely Excludes Water Charges," March 15, 2016)
