$10 Million Settlement – Environmental Property Damage
About The Case
Wagstaff & Cartmell reached a $10 million class action settlement with an engineering firm on behalf of a class of Northwest Missouri landowners. The case involved allegations that a tannery distributed tannery sludge containing hexavalent chromium to landowners to use as fertilizer in four Missouri counties from 1983 to 2009. The defendant, an engineering firm, provided consulting services to the tannery during some of that time period.
