Mark Eames - Attorney of the Year
ATTORNEY OF THE YEAR
Mark A. Eames (GCNW)
Provided outstanding contributions to NOAA's handling of the 2008 Federal Columbia River Power System biological opinion and related FCRPS litigation. In particular, Mark is recognized for his tireless efforts in assisting Dr. Lubchenco in her review of the litigation and 2008 biological opinion, which culminated in NOAA and the FCRPS action agencies adopting an Adaptive Management Implementation Plan, providing enhanced monitoring provisions and extensive contingency actions should the benefits anticipated in the 2008 biological opinion not materialize. Mark was instrumental in all aspects of the review process and subsequent AMIP, which has taken place in the face of court-imposed deadlines and intense scrutiny both within and outside the government.
