This position is located in the Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD), Natural Resources Section (NRS), in Washington, DC. NRS handles a number of diverse issues ranging from litigation to protect our nation's resources and public lands to defense of the public fisc against claims by private property owners for alleged "takings" and by Native Americans for alleged trust breaches. By virtue of our responsibility for all litigation under the National Environmental Policy Act, we defend the decision-making processes of almost every federal agency. Recent examples include litigation over agency decisions related to the gulf oil spill, renewable energy projects, and snowmobile use in national parks. Our attorneys practice in both Federal and State courts. NRS is the second largest section in the Division with approximately 80 attorneys who are assigned to one of five litigating teams. Our practice involves:
Emergency litigation defending against temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions;
Defense of the decisions of administrative agencies in accordance with the review standards of the Administrative Procedure Act;
Original actions in the Supreme Court, tried before a Special Master; and
Trial and pre-trial practice in inverse condemnation, water rights, and Indian trust cases, with emphasis on the preparation of expert testimony.
