Brockovich came to Cameron in October 2008 for an informational meeting at the high school gymnasium. As reported by KMBC-TV, W&C worked with the Los Angeles law firm of Girardi & Keese to help arrange her visit to Cameron, and W&C will continue to work closely with her throughout the investigation.
Brockovich is perhaps best known as the subject of the Universal Pictures 2000 movie, Erin Brockovich. Julia Roberts won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Brockovich and her incredible investigation of ground water contamination in Hinckley, California, which ultimately resulted in Pacific Gas & Electric paying a $333 million settlement to more than 600 Hinckley residents affected by the contamination.
Brockovich continues working to this day and also has strong ties to this area. She was raised in Lawrence, Kansas, graduated from Lawrence High School, and attended Kansas State University.
