Mar.05.2015 — Greenwire/E&E News
This article covers Kent Recycling Services LLC v. Army Corps of Engineers, a high-profile case which questions whether a corps jurisdictional determination for a wetland qualifies for judicial review. Crowell & Moring's Washington, D.C.-based partner, Richard E. Schwartz, focuses on the Clean Water Act and stresses the potential outcome of this decision. "It imposes a lot of hardship on the people trying to develop land because if they go ahead, they do so at their own peril," adding, "The consequences are incredibly significant, and there should be judicial review."
