CL&M Partner Featured in Article on New Environmental Court
Environmental Practice Group Co-Chair Stephen L. Kass was featured in a July 30, 2001 New York Law Journal article on the recently opened environmental claims part of the New York State Supreme Court in Westchester County. Kass represents United Water New Rochelle, Inc. in a suit against the Planning Board of the Town of Eastchester, NY, seeking local approvals for the construction of a long-delayed water treatment plant. The suit was one of the first three accepted by the part, established to bring greater attention and expertise to complicated environmental litigation like the United Water case. Kass noted, "I think lawyers appreciate trying cases before judges who are familiar with the subject matter. It does help all the parties focus on the issues."
