Taft partner Robert A. Bilott was featured in an article in Le Courrier. The Q&A style article discusses Bilott's experience in the decade-long litigation against DuPont and how he hopes to increase global awareness on drinking water contamination. The Geneva newspaper referenced the article headline on the front page of the Dec. 20 print edition.
Bilott, who serves as co-lead counsel for the plaintiff’s altering committee handling litigation against DuPont, has been in the spotlight since The New York Times Magazine dubbed him “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare” in an article published on Jan. 6, 2016. On Feb. 13, 2017, DuPont publicly disclosed that it has reached a settlement in principle to resolve the C-8 personal injury, multi-district litigation now pending in federal court in Columbus, Ohio, for $670.7 million.
Bilott is a member of Taft's Environmental, Litigation and Product Liability and Personal Injury practices. He represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state and local environmental laws and related litigation.
