Steven Solow Quoted on Flint Water Criminal Charges

Firm News | April 20, 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 to Bloomberg BNA's Daily Environment Report on the first criminal charges filed in the Flint, Michigan water crisis. Steven noted that the state charges would impact any ongoing federal investigation. He stated that while "we don’t know whom the federal government is focusing on," under the Justice Department's "Petite Policy," the federal government would consider whether a federal prosecution of the three individuals would be pursued in order to address a separate federal interest, such as whether the defendants' actions impaired the functioning of the EPA.
