Burton v. American Cyanamid Co. et al.

Atlantic Richfield Co.

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.
