Lara Beaven of Inside EPA shares this interesting piece on the obstacles to criminal prosecutions of the Clean Water Act that brings to mind the old gem that begins "what do you have when you have [fill in the blank] lawyers up to their necks in sand?"  The many lawyers Ms. Beaven spoke to had many opinions but I still think the safe bet is that, if the Supreme Court can't define the reach of the Clean Water Act in a civil case, a constitutionally sound criminal prosecution is out of the question.  Let's see if I'm correct about what the Prosecutors do next with Mr. Lucero.
