Litigation

We handle a wide variety of environmental litigation and claims. These includes private parties, governmental agencies, and activist groups involving Prop. 65, compliance with statutory programs such as RCRA/HWCL, Superfund, toxic trespass and nuisance, CEQA/NEPA compliance, and pesticide regulation.

We have experience with the remedies of damages, injunctions, cleanup costs, consent judgments, mandamus, specific performance and quiet title. ¬†We have also defended “citizen suits” brought under Proposition 65, the Clean Water Act, RCRA, and NEPA/CEQA.

Representative Matters:

  • Multi-party groundwater cleanup lawsuits.
  • Federal and state court cleanup cost recoveries and damages.
  • Claims involving environmental consultants as to audits, etc.
  • Takings (“inverse condemnation”) from pollution by the government.
  • Superfund clean up costs, contribution claims, and RCRA injunctive remedies.
  • Prop. 65, including cosmetics, auto products, clothing, camping gear, and manufacturing practices.
  • Clean Water Act pollution.
  • Fraud, negligent nondisclosure, and misrepresentation.
  • NEPA, CEQA, Civil Rights, and judicial review of government agency decisions.
