Harvard Law Professor Jody Freeman has been named lead attorney for the White House Office of Energy and Climate Change. White House Climate Policy Czar Carol Browner selected Freeman for the post at the end of last week. Freeman joins the administration from Harvard Law School, where she was the founding director of the environmental law program. Freeman also has ties to the April 2007 Supreme Court Case, Massachusetts v EPA, as she wrote an amicus brief questioning EPA’s position that it lacked authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from motor vehicles.
