Citizen Suits and Regulatory Enforcement
Sometimes our enforcement agencies fail to sufficiently address the regulatory violations of corporate polluters. The Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act and other federal and state laws have provisions that allow citizens to bring lawsuits to ensure that companies abide by the laws intended to curb their pollution.
