KMTG Will Host MCLE Presentation On Sackett v. EPA Decision

On Friday, June 8, from 12 p.m. - 1p.m. (pacific time), Kronick Moskovitz Tiedemann & Girard (KMTG) will be hosting a brown-bag lunch MCLE event, entitled "Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency: Judicial Review of Clean Water Act Compliance Orders." On March 21, the Supreme Court issued its unanimous decision in Sackett v. EPA, holding that Clean Water Act compliance orders are final agency action subject to judicial review under the Administrative Procedure Act. In so ruling, the high court reversed twenty years of lower court precedent holding that landowners who receive such orders have no right to challenge those orders in federal court. Damien Schiff of the Pacific Legal Foundation, lead counsel for the Sacketts, will lead a webinar presentation on the decision. KMTG will be hosting the in-person presentation. Mr. Schiff's presentation will include a short history of the case and how it ended up in the Supreme Court, a review of Justice Scalia’s opinion for the Court, and expectations for how the decision will affect EPA’s enforcement of the Clean Water Act and other environmental laws. The webinar will be moderated by Hanspeter Walter of KMTG.

This event is presented by the Natural Resources subsection of the California Bar’s Real Property Law section.  Attendees of the webinar or the in-person presentation are eligible for 1.0 MCLE credit.
