Arnold & Porter Secures Trial Victory for Atlantic Richfield

June 5, 2019

Following a four-week trial in a Milwaukee federal court, Arnold & Porter secured a verdict of no liability for Atlantic Richfield Company in a personal injury lawsuit involving the ingestion of lead paint by three plaintiffs. The plaintiffs sued under Wisconsin's unique "risk contribution" rule, which relieves a plaintiff in lead paint cases from the need to prove manufacturer identification.

The Arnold & Porter team included Jonathan Stern, lead trial lawyer for Atlantic Richfield, Philip Curtis, Bruce Kelly, Bill Voth, Elisabeth Theodore, Reuben Koolyk, Matthew Grant, Kevin Sullivan, Susan Hu, Lauren Rivard, Sarah Prather, and Wil Sharon.
