Abernathy v. Monsanto: 3,500 Alabama Residents, in what The Washington Post described as a “huge victory in a landmark environmental lawsuit” against Monsanto Company and its successor Solutia. This massive case concerned decades of PCB pollution in the vicinity of a Monsanto plant in Anniston, Alabama. After a 17-month jury trial in which the firm obtained $100 million in jury verdicts for a portion of the plaintiffs, the case ultimately settled with the firm’s clients receiving $170 million (after costs and fees).
Bice v. Micon: More than 1,300 Alabama coal miners suffering permanent respiratory injuries as a result of their exposure to isocyanate-based products in mines in their action against Dow, BASF and Bayer alleging failure to warn and an industry-wide conspiracy extending over decades to conceal the hazards. After a nine-day hearing, the firm successfully defeated defendants’ motions for summary judgment. The case settled favorably for the plaintiffs on the eve of trial.
