Robert Greer argues before the Arizona Court of Appeals

BWG partner Robert Greer argued before the Arizona Court of Appeals on May 6, 2014, on issues never before decided in Arizona.  It had to do with the power of the state to sue an owner of land, whose ownership was public record, for environmental damages which were agreed to be paid by party to whom the land had been leased 15 years earlier.  The earlier judgment could not be paid, so the state turned to the landowner and sued on the same claim.

Robert Greer is no stranger to oral argument before the Court of Appeals.  Throughout his thirty-six year career, his litigation practice has brought him before the court numerous times.  Check out Robert’s biography for more information.  And to view a video of this particular oral argument, follow this link and click “Watch This Video On YouTube” in the window.
