Resolution with No Liability for PCB Contamination at Superfund Site

Our client, Southern Tool, LLC was sued in a $100 million cost recovery action under the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) for polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) and lead contamination in Anniston, Alabama.  The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama (J. Greene) granted summary judgment in favor of Southern Tool, holding that the Plaintiffs could not prove a case against Southern Tool.  Plaintiffs did not appeal the decision.  In addition, Hunsucker Goodstein obtained insurance funding for the defense of Southern Tool.
