Uranium contamination

Atlantic Richfield Co.

Our attorneys represented a former mining company in the defense of a large putative class action toxic tort matter related to copper mining operations in Nevada.  Plaintiffs alleged that groundwater containing arsenic and uranium had contaminated drinking water in the vicinity of the mine and sought medical monitoring and diminution in value property damages. The Court entered final approval of a settlement class in 2014 which, in part, resulted in the construction of a significant expansion to a municipal water system.
