Knowing that the courts are there; knowing that an increasingly litigious citizenry--individuals and organizations--is prepared to go to court, knowing that citizens may be reimbursed for their legal expenses if they prevail in court, knowing that the Justice Department will examine the agency's action as to both procedure and substance, knowing that agency officials are not free of personal liability, knowing all this strongly encourages administrators to be mindful of the intent of the law and the rights of individuals as they make policy and manage programs.
