HILLSIDE LANDFILL LAWSUIT UPDATE

Last Updated: May 21, 2019

Mr. Dunn and Mr. Reott have produced all of our team of expert witnesses, which includes testimony from various witnesses on Landfill operations, standards, and practices, Landfill gas modeling, air dispersion modeling, landfill gas chemistry, odors and odor detection, and medical causation. We also had a very prestigious consultant animate the gas and air modelling to produce a gas plume and superimposed that plume over a map of the area and our clients’ homes to show gas concentrations, in real time, over a three year period. We are half-way through deposing the Landfill’s team of experts, which should be completed by this summer. In the next phase, we will be asking the Court to allow us to seek punitive damages against the Landfill at trial. Once we obtain that ruling, the judge has entered an order scheduling the first group of trials for claimants, to begin in March of 2020. This first group of trials will be conducted for the purpose of gauging the value of our clients’ claims. We are hopeful that a resolution can be reached with the Landfill, but if not, we will be conducting over 800 trials in the coming years to bring each and every claim to resolution.
