This post is simple.  I have a new term for the green building and legal industries:


What is LEEDigation?  LEEDigation is green building litigation.  LEEDigation could involve disputes arising from green building certification.  LEEDigation could arise if a project fails to obtain government incentives or satisfy mandates for green building construction.  LEEDigation could simply result from improperly designed or constructed green building strategies. 

There you have it:  LEEDigation.  Feel free to start using it.  But don't forget about its origin!
