Bilott Quoted in Three Australian Articles on Water Contamination
Taft partner Robert A. Bilott was quoted in the following articles by The Guardian, an Australian publication:
- "Seafood in popular Darwin Fishing spots contaminated by toxic foam"
- "'Children are being poisoned': fury at scandal of toxic firefighting chemicals"
- "US warned Australia over toxic firefighting chemical 17 years ago"
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 groups. He represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state and local environmental laws and related litigation.
