New Developments from the 9th Circuit
Wednesday, November 17, 2010
1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time / 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Central Time

This year the 9th Circuit has issued several important opinions addressing critical habitat issues under the Endangered Species Act, ranging from designation to adverse modification. Whether and how critical habitat gets designated and protected from adverse modification are the essence of its value to endangered species recovery, and can also be quite important to land-owners.
Three Endangered Species Act experts, each from a different sector, will provide you with the opportunity to get caught up with these developments as well as to delve a bit more deeply into their potential consequences. First, Professor Daniel Rohlf, who has a significant body of scholarly work on the ESA, will present a summary of the new cases and discuss their relevance in light of the history of critical habitat protection. We will then hear from John Buse, the Legal Director for the Center for Biological Diversity, who will share his perspective on the cases and how they might impact his organization's efforts to secure greater protection for listed species. Finally, Rafe Petersen, a partner at Holland & Knight whose practice focuses on environmental litigation and counseling clients on compliance and enforcement matters, will discuss the impact these critical habitat issues have on industrial and development interests.
