On March 20, 2003, the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) released their “Guidelines for Joint State/Federal Civil Environmental Enforcement Litigation” (the Guidelines).1 The Guidelines, developed with the cooperation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), are intended to assist state and federal authorities in the development, litigation, and settlement of joint civil judicial environmental enforcement actions.

This “Washington Watch” column discusses the Guidelines, and explains why “joint enforcement” is often easier said than done.
