TRB will conduct a webinar on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM ET that provides an update of case law as it relates to environmental review of transportation projects. The webinar will focus on recent case law in the areas of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act, and environmental justice. These cases provide lessons for environmental practitioners, agency officials, and attorneys interested in the timely delivery of transportation projects. Each year, there are numerous decisions by the 11 U.S. Courts of Appeal and more U.S District Court decisions that are of interest to practitioners. The presenters will discuss the key takeaways from some of these cases, including where federal agencies did not prevail.
This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Environmental Issues in Transportation Law.
