Bilott To Participate in People’s University Climate Change Series

Taft partner Rob Bilott will participate in the People’s University Climate Change series-class 5, “Reasons for Hope – Generation Z Takes Action,” on Sept. 7 at The Ohio Public Library in Wheeling, W.V. Bilott will join via Zoom with 11 year-old Zane Murray of Wheeling, who met with and interviewed Bilott in December 2022 for a school project on PFAS and wrote more than 140 letters urging action on PFAS to state and federal lawmakers.

Dubbed by The New York Times Magazine as “The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare” in an article published on Jan. 6, 2016, Bilott has represented a diverse array of clients, nationwide, who have been harmed by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as “Forever Chemicals.” His work is the subject of a recent feature film, “Dark Waters,” and the documentary “The Devil We Know,” and is detailed in his book, “Exposure: Poisoned Water, Corporate Greed, and One Lawyer’s Twenty-year Battle Against DuPont.”

Bilott is a member of Taft’s Environmental, Litigation, and Product Liability and Personal Injury practices and is a board member of Less Cancer and Green Umbrella.
