Leslie of King & Spalding LLP will moderate the session. The Environmental Justice session is part of the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Environmental & Energy, Mass Torts, and Products Liability Litigation Committees’ Joint Virtual Regional CLE Program to be held on January 27–28, 2022.

The panel will discuss how new policies, regulations, and enforcement initiatives focusing on environmental justice are impacting environmental investigations and remediation, citizen suits, toxic tort actions, and governmental enforcement, as well as the permitting of new and existing facilities and redevelopment of brownfield sites. Increasingly, state environmental agencies and attorneys general are getting in on the action, implementing new regulations, litigation, and enforcement actions emphasizing environmental justice. The panel will discuss these fast-breaking developments, explore the impact on new and existing sites, and unpack the litigation and regulatory ramifications of this new emphasis on environmental justice.
