NJ Enviro Decision Will Help Bankroll Site Cleanups - Dennis Toft
August 7, 2014
Member of the Firm Dennis M. Toft was quoted in the August 7, 2014 Law360 article, "NJ Enviro Decision Will Help Bankroll Site Cleanup." The article focuses on a recent New Jersey Supreme Court decision allowing parties responsible for contaminated sites to sue others for contribution without waiting on state enforcement efforts to help fund cleanups. On the issue of who would oversee and approve costs, Dennis tells Law360, "This is not something done now unless public funding is involved and there is no mechanism for NJDEP to do so outside a case involving public money." He also notes, "Litigation could end up filling in the blanks, or legislation making clear that any such approval of cleanup and removal costs can be delegated to LSRPs."
