Known for his pivotal role in a class-action suit involving PFOA/PFAS chemical exposure, Taft partner Robert A. Bilott was recently interviewed by The Intercept regarding the current state of chemical regulation in the U.S.
The article shares information regarding DuPont-spinoff company Chemours and its activity in transporting toxic chemical GenX waste from Dordrecht, Netherlands to Fayetteville, N.C. “What worries me are the folks living in states that have refused to take any action, because they’re waiting for the federal government to act,” explains Bilott. The article also provides information on how Chemours has disposed of GenX waste in the past on both an international and national level. To learn more, click here.
