Eubanks to Speak on BP Oil Spill at 18th Annual Animal Law Conference

Bill Eubanks will be presenting at the 18th Annual Animal Law Conference in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, October 16, on a panel titled, Dangerous Waters: Animals in the Wake of the Gulf Oil Spill.  Eubanks was the lead counsel for conservation and animal protection organizations in a recent lawsuit that forced BP and the Coast Guard to substantially alter their in-situ burn policies in order to ensure that endangered and threatened sea turtles would not be killed by the burns.  More information about the conference can be found here: http://www.lclark.edu/law/student_groups/student_animal_legal_defense_fund/animal_law_conference/
