SPEAKER: Kenneth Anspach, Anspach Law
TOPIC: U.S. Supreme Court Has Leveled the Playing Field for Regulated Parties

Our March meeting will feature a presentation by Kenneth Anspach on two recent U.S. Supreme Court cases: Christopher v. SmithKline Beecham Corporation ("Christopher"), 132 S. Ct. 2156 (2012) and Sackett v. Environmental Protection Agency ("Sackett"), 132 S. Ct. 1367 (2012). Christopher held that administrative agencies must give fair warning of forbidden conduct. Sackett held that administrative compliance orders under the federal Clean Water Act are reviewable under the federal Administrative Procedure Act. Mr. Anspach will discuss the impact of these decisions on administrative law at the state level.
