$2.7 Million Settlement in Environmental Justice Case
Represented dozens of mostly African-American homeowners who were sickened by industrial pollution from a toxic waste site in their neighborhood. This long-fought case was brought in the 1990's against a toxic waste processing company and its major customers, including auto makers and large corporations who brought their toxic waste to this modest neighborhood in Southeastern Michigan. People living near the site were nauseated by chemical fumes. Many suffered respiratory disease. This case ultimately secured compensation for victims, and more importantly, the spotlight shone on the wrongdoers forced them to clean up their waste management practices.
