City of Chicago v. American Cyanamid Co.
Our attorneys successfully moved to dismiss the City of Chicago's public nuisance lawsuit seeking billions of dollars of damages and abatement remedies against alleged former lead pigment producers. The Illinois Court of Appeal affirmed, City of Chicago v. American Cyanamid Co., 823 N.W. 2d 126 (2005), and the Illinois Supreme Court denied review. Our litigators also have obtained dismissals or summary judgment in more than 50 lead pigment lawsuits filed in eight other US jurisdictions.
