Edward Cocchiarella blogs that many mining companies are looking at ways to re-invent themselves in these challenging economic times. In reorganizations, mergers, or break-ups, environmental compliance obligations can take a back seat and critical issues might get overlooked. As an auditor and member of transition teams he has seen environmental requirements slip through the cracks. These have included legal and voluntary obligations. Even companies registered to the management system standards, like ISO 14001, may not sufficiently address these areas. Paying attention to these elements will s... More →

Jonathan Foley and Christine Arena opine that the decision to constrain and muzzle scientific research signals an important milestone. The War on Science has shifted into high gear. This is a fight for our future, and scientists as well as citizens had better prepare for what is coming next.

At his confirmation hearings last week, the new EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt unveiled the new language of this war, a subtle, yet potentially damaging form of science skepticism. Manmade climate change, he says, is subject to continuing debate. There is reason to be concerned about methane rel... More →

Derek Ezovski blogs that he works with lenders and borrowers nationwide and historically, environmental due diligence consisted of Phase I ESAs for most transactions/loans and Transaction Screen Assessments (TSAs) for lower risk transactions/loans. However, over the past 10 or so years, for many reasons including new SBA guidance documents, higher levels of risk tolerance and the development of new lower level environmental screening tools (Records Search with Risk Assessment, Desktop Reviews, ORMS EnviroFlash reports), he has seen more variations of environmental due diligence being used.

Anjelica Cappellino reports that at common law, lay witnesses could testify to facts, but unlike experts, could not offer opinions, inferences, or conclusions. The justification was that unless information was too complex for a jury to understand without the help of an expert, a jury should be able to interpret evidence and draw its own conclusions.
