Steven Solow Weighs In on NY Construction Debris Dumping Scandal

Firm News | May 22, 2019

Steven Solow, head of the White Collar, Investigations and Compliance practice in the firm's Washington, DC office and head of the Environmental and Workplace Safety practice, spoke with Newsday on New York's largest construction debris dumping scheme in state history. The materials containing hazardous substances far exceeded the state's Department of Environmental Conservation limits. Regarding the developer's potential culpability in the scheme, Steve noted that the price-per-truckload should have been a sign that illegal dumping was taking place. "A deal that is 'too good to be true' can be circumstantial evidence" that can be used to establish knowledge by prosecutors, said Steve.
