Taft partner Robert A. Bilott's work against chemical pollutants in drinking water scored another victory today. The Law360 article, "DuPont Hit With $5.1M Verdict in 2nd Cancer Bellwether Trial," outlines this latest victory. Bilott, who serves as co-lead counsel for the plaintiff's altering committee handling the litigation, has been in the spotlight since New York Times Magazine dubbed him "The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare" in an article published on Jan. 6, 2016. Also assisting in this most recent trial is Taft partner David Butler.
Bilott is a member of the firm's Environmental, Litigation and Product Liability and Personal Injury groups. He represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state and local environmental laws and related litigation.
Butler is the partner-in-charge of Taft’s Columbus office. He is a business trial lawyer with experience representing companies in a wide range of complex, commercial legal matters, including class actions and multi-district litigation.
