About Richard Faulk
As a practicing trial and appellate lawyer in Texas and Washington DC for 38 years, my principal practice and research subjects usually deal with emerging issues in mass torts and environmental law. Concerns such as the Alien Tort Statute, global climate change and public nuisance litigation currently occupy my interests. Increasingly, these issues are involved in international disputes, so my work often addresses the permissible scope of those issues in the international arena. Procedures such as class actions and other aggregate case management methods are inevitably involved with those subjects.
