Maureen Gorsen Quoted in Los Angeles Times on CA Toxicity Study

“What is the scientific reasoning for including fishing equipment?” asked Maureen Gorsen, partner in Alston & Bird’s Environmental & Land Use Group and former director of California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control. “It’s like throwing darts on a board.”
