Hansen v. United States
- Case Date: 5/1/2002
- Project Name: Environmental Law Project
WLF filed a brief with the United States Supreme Court urging it to grant review and reverse a lower court decision in Hansen v. United States that would set a dangerous precedent for holding company officials and supervisors criminally liable without having to show actual knowledge on their part of the alleged environmental violations. The Court will decide by the end of June whether to take this important case.
|Review denied by Supreme Court on June 3, 2002.|
