Charles A. De Monaco will speak on "The Exxon Valdez oil spill and the Everglades litigation and restoration" in the Moot Court Room (129) of the Pettit College of Law at Ohio Northern University on Monday, March 16, at noon.

Sponsored by the ONU Environmental Law Society, this event is free and open to the public.

De Monaco earned his juris doctor degree from ONU in 1974 and is now a partner at Fox Rothschild LLP, a firm with 400 lawyers and 14 offices across the United States. In addition to providing legal representation to both corporate and individual clients in the private sector, De Monaco provides representation in federal civil litigation regarding restoration of the Florida Everglades.

De Monaco was assistant chief of the environmental crimes section of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., for nine years. During that time, he served as lead counsel in the criminal prosecution of U.S. v. Exxon and Exxon Shipping Co. for the massive 1989 Exxon Valdez Alaska oil spill. The $1.1 billion criminal and civil settlements obtained by the government represented the largest comprehensive settlement in the history of law enforcement.
