ESG-in-Law Series Discusses Litigation Risk around Human Rights and Greenwashing Claims

February 2024 

By Patrick Miller

California Lawyers Association’s Environmental, Social and Governance Interest Group released two new episodes of our ESG-in-Law video series. The episodes featured discussions with Professor Ramona Lampley and Christina Tusan covering litigation risks involving environmental and human rights issues.

Patrick Miller spoke with Professor Ramona Lampley about her academic research involving litigation risk for human rights abuses in the U.S. These are key risks for companies with international supply chains and require proper due diligence to address.

Lampley’s academic work at St. Mary’s University School of Law focuses on business and human rights issues, particularly litigation risk for human rights abuses. 

Next, Patrick Miller spoke with Christina Tusan about her work in government and private practice, bringing claims for false advertising. A key concern is false advertising related to ESG claims, otherwise known as greenwashing litigation. 

Tusan is a partner at HammondLaw, P.C., where she focuses on helping consumers bring claims related to false advertising, particularly greenwashing claims.
