We found an expert with an M.S. in Geology and a PhD in Marine Sciences that was a consultant. He was a licensed Geologist and very knowledgeable about the region of the complaint. Furthermore, he taught undergraduate and graduate level college classes on sediment transportation and had inspected over 50 construction sites for sediment transport. Additionally, he had written over 20 papers and regularly presented at conferences. Finally, he had served as an expert witness, providing testimony, depositions, and expert reports in over 20 legal cases most of which involved sediment transport. Both parties reached an amicable agreement and a consent judgment was filed.
