Energy & Infrastructure Counsel Quoted on California Fracking Regulations


This article, about California state lawmakers and regulators' recent attempts to regulate hydraulic fracturing, quotes energy and infrastructure of counsel Robert Lawrence.

According to Lawrence, potential legal remedies attached to state disclosure requirements could also result in court challenges that could tie up drilling projects.

"You could make a mini-industry in California about suing over false disclosure or nondisclosure, rather than addressing the issue of whether hydraulic fracturing is safe or not," Lawrence said.
