Lawyer Now Assisting State On Coal Ash Previously Represented Duke Energy On Same Issue
A lawyer advising North Carolina's environmental agency on rewriting clean-up rules for Duke Energy's coal ash dumps previously represented the electricity company on the same issue.
Craig Bromby was hired in June at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. He retired in March as a partner at the Raleigh office of Hunton & Williams, where his corporate clients included Duke.
Bromby assisted the state Environmental Management Commission this week as it considered key tweaks to state groundwater regulations that will affect his former client.
