Polakiewicz v. United States Steel Corporation, et al.; Aumann v. United States Steel Corporation, et al.; Rhilinger v. United States Steel Corporation, et al.
Our attorneys represented IMC Global in a series of property damage cases asserting negligent operations that resulted in increased risks from naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) affecting hundreds of properties and homes. Our environmental litigation team used successful motions practice to defeat claims in advance of any discovery or adjudication of liability allegations. We were able to defeat purported class action twice. The results of the case ceased efforts by the plaintiffs' bar to mount an assault on phosphate mining and reclamation efforts in Florida and elsewhere, based on disturbance of naturally occurring radioactive materials.
