Wiens to Speak at Superfund CLE 

ELG attorney Susan Wiens will be speaking at a CLE on Wednesday, February 24, 2016, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Superfund.  Sponsored by the Minnesota State Bar Association’s Environment, Natural Resources and Energy Section, the CLE will examine Superfund’s origins, its current effects on corporate behavior and real estate practices and its likely future.  Susan will speak on the Natural Resource Damages component of Superfund.  As Superfund site remedial actions mature, the DOJ and relevant Trustees are circling back to Responsible Parties seeking Natural Resource Damages that remain post cleanup. Susan will discuss the basic principles for recovery of Natural Resource Damages, potential defenses available to Responsible Parties and how Trustees obtain jurisdiction to recover damages.
