Defense of EPA CERCLA liability claims and toxic tort lawsuit

Parsons Behle & Latimer was retained by a trucking client to represent it in the defense of EPA CERCLA liability claims and toxic tort lawsuit filed by down gradient subdivision landowners at the Brookhurst Superfund Site in Casper, Wyoming. Applying results of the remedial investigation studies, EPA issued a letter that client was no longer considered a potentially responsible party at the site. Using the remedial investigation studies and EPA letter, successfully defended client in the toxic tort lawsuit. Defense costs in both the EPA and toxic tort litigation were paid by the client's insurance company.
