Description
Represented a leading East Coast barge and tug company in a Cape Cod oil spill, which resulted in a criminal prosecution arising from violations of the Clean Water Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act, among other violations. The attorney defended the client in a related environmental class action trial in Massachusetts state court and in a companion case brought in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts. The state action was one of the very few class action trials resulting from an environmental incident and was the first environmental class action ever tried in Massachusetts. The matter was favorably resolved following trial.
