Enforcing the Clean Water Act to stop illegal discharges of plastic pellets into Lavaca Bay

The Clinic is co-counseling with Texas RioGrande Legal Aid in a Clean Water Act citizen suit on behalf of Texas Injured Workers and Commercial Oystermen of Texas.  The suit seeks to force a company to stop the decade-long, illegal discharge of plastic pellets into the bay. Students helped draft a notice of intent to sue, toured the Bay and interviewed clients, and have provided litigation assistance on procedural and evidentiary issues.
