B&D Hosting Webinar on West Coast Super Torts
Principal Gary Smith (San Francisco) and Associate Casey Clausen (Seattle) will speak in a webinar hosted by Beveridge & Diamond. The webinar is titled "West Coast Super Torts: Municipal and State PCB Litigation" and will take place from 12:00pm to 1:00pm (PDT) on March 14.
The webinar will look at the recent and current claims, analyze the implications for chemical manufacturers and distributors and for the cleanup of Superfund sites, and provide strategies for litigation. Increasingly, municipalities and states are pursuing public nuisance theories against product manufacturers and distributors. Actions filed by West Coast municipalities and states over the past three years against polychlorinated biphenyl manufacturer Monsanto have proven to have surprising staying power.
