Jane Luxton to Join Regulatory Transparency Project Webinar on Fishing Industry Rules

Washington, D.C. (July 12, 2023) – On July 17, Managing Partner Jane C. Luxton will join a Regulatory Transparency Project (RTP) webinar on The National Marine Fisheries Service’s (NMFS) rule on the $1.5 billion dollar lobster fishing industry in Maine, which resulted in multiple lawsuits and congressional action before it was rejected by a D.C. appeals court. 

In this informative presentation at 12:00 p.m. ET, Ms. Luxton and her co-panelist will discuss how the NMFS’ efforts to restrict lobster fishing through the enactment of rules under both the Endangered Species Act and Marine Mammal Protection Act is part of a larger trend. Ms. Luxton, who was one of the attorneys on the briefs for Maine Lobstermen’s Association, will provide key insights on the legality and constitutionality of NMFS’s regulatory efforts. 

Regulatory Transparency Project is a nonprofit and nonpartisan venture of The Federalist Society, dedicated to fostering discussion and a better understanding of regulatory policies. 

Ms. Luxton is chair of the firm's Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Practice, co-chair of its Government Investigations & White-Collar Defense Practice, its Environment, Land, & Natural Resources Law Practice, its Administrative Law & Regulatory Practice, and its Sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Practice, and is vice-chair of the Consumer Financial Services Practice. She has extensive experience in environmental as well as other federal regulatory, policy, and litigation matters, and advises businesses, associations, and coalitions in navigating all levels of the federal regulatory process, including appellate advocacy.
