This annual review of environmental crime enforcement provides an update on the prosecution of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion and oil spill, reports on the use of "big data" in prosecuting environmental crimes (particularly the fraudulent trade in renewable identification numbers), and addresses the use of unique liability theories in the Deepwater Horizon individual prosecutions.
