Ben Fisherow was awarded the 2009 Service to America Justice and Law Enforcement Medal for his work to prevent air pollution. As an experienced litigator with the Department of Justice’s Environment and Natural Resources Division, Ben has spent over twenty years enforcing key provisions of the Clean Air Act and taking legal action against utilities that violate anti-pollution mandates. In one case alone, Ben secured a settlement that prevented the release of over 800,000 tons of air pollutants annually.
