Creative common law strategies for protecting the environment.


Creative common law strategies for protecting the environment.

Ed. by Clifford Rechtschaffen and Denise Antolini.

Environmental Law Inst.


426 pages




Despite all the new environmental laws passed over the past four decades, and the whole new legal culture that has evolved with them, traditional remedies like trespass, nuisance, and fraud can still prove useful to environmental advocates. Scholars and practitioners of environmental law explore such aspects as the limits of statutory law and the wisdom of the common law, global warming as the ultimate public nuisance, perchloroethylene manufacturers pay to get their product out of public drinking water, and concentrated animal feeding operations and the common law.
