Clinic student Zak Kearns (JD ’14) today made the opening argument and examined two witnesses in an administrative sanctions hearing as part of the Environmental Law and Policy Clinic’s ongoing work to defend the right of renewable energy companies to conduct business and install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in Massachusetts. Clinical instructor Shaun Goho examined the other witnesses and made the closing argument. Casey Clausen (JD ’14) also helped with the preparations for the hearing.
Last summer, the Clinic won a major ruling in Superior Court, when the court rejected an effort by the state electricians’ board to block non-electrician solar contractors from advertising and contracting for PV installations.
