FERC Appoints Former Prosecutor as Head of Enforcement Office

FERC last week announced the appointment of Norman C. Bay to head its Office of Enforcement.  Professor Bay is a former U.S. Attorney who focused on criminal matters and is currently an associate professor at the University of New Mexico School of Law. The message sent by the appointment of former criminal prosecutor Bay as head of the Office of Enforcement is clear: FERC's new Chairman Wellinghoff intends to continue the vigorous pursuit of violations of the laws that FERC administers.
