Jones and Conway successfully defend alleged permit violations

Gordon Thomas Honeywell LLP, February 2019

GTH partners Brad B. Jones and Dianne K. Conway recently won a dismissal of a Clean Water Act (CWA) citizen suit filed by Puget Soundkeeper Alliance (PSA) against SSA Marine, Inc. and SSA Terminals, LLC for alleged permit violations at the West Sitcum Terminal in the Port of Tacoma. The federal court found that the notice provided by PSA alleging future hypothetical claims if SSA Marine, Inc. and SSA Terminals, LLC were to later start operations at the Terminal was premature and failed to meet the basic requirements of CWA’s notice provision.
