Steve Solow, National Chair of Katten's Environmental Practice, commented on the recent DOJ shift of authority in the criminal investigation of the Gulf oil spill for an NPR news story. Mr. Solow, who formerly led the Justice Department unit that prosecutes environmental crimes, said the decisions in the Gulf investigation will be tough and emotional. "When the government looks at the case, what it may find is that the only people with the knowledge that would make them potentially liable are not necessarily the people the government is really looking to target," Mr. Solow says. "These may be line workers, employees, people who in a catastrophic situation may have seen their friends injured or perish."
