Q: How do you decide when to pursue litigation?
A: There are probably 200 members of the program staff--lawyers, scientists, economists, policy types. If you look at all their projects, we're trying to get things done by working with the scientific community and through advocacy in various forms. But sometimes litigation is the best tool we have. In my view it's a very powerful tool, if used effectively and judiciously.
