Good Luck With That: U.S. Attorney in Fishers Island Ferry Case is Off to Help Alberto Gonzales

Remember the case against the Fishers Island Ferry District for dumping raw sewage into the Thames River and Long Island Sound (if you don't, read this and this)? And the case against Operations Management International, the company that runs some of the sewage treatment plants that empty into Long Island Sound (details on that case are here)?

Both are excellent examples of what a prosecutor can accomplish when he or she focuses on environmental issues. The prosecutor was Connecticut's U.S. Attorney, Kevin J. O'Connor, a young, politically-ambitious, and accomplished Republican who is now off to Washington to serve as chief of staff for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

With any luck, O'Connor will be back fulltime in his New Haven office soon.
