Ignacia Moreno, currently the Assistant Attorney General for the Environment and Natural Resources Division at the Justice Department, just announced that she is leaving her post by early next month. ENRD represents EPA, Interior, and other federal agencies on environment and natural resources issues, both enforcement as well as defensive litigation. I understand that it’s not clear yet what Ignacia will be doing after she leaves, but I am sure that she would be a prime prospect for many position, both in the private as well as the public sector.
In addition, David Hayes, Deputy Secretary for the Department of Interior, is leaving soon to take on a teaching position at Stanford Law School and other work with the Hewlett Foundation.
