Law360 and the Connecticut Law Tribune reported on Silver Golub & Teitell's lawsuit over contaminated drinking water in Westminster, Massachusetts, after a magistrate judge recommended that civil racketeering and other claims should move forward.
In recommendations on September 1, 2023, U.S. Magistrate Judge David H. Hennessy said claims should proceed against companies that dumped contaminated waste at an organic composting facility in Westminster, the two publications reported. Judge Hennessy also recommended that claims should proceed against 3M, the company that manufactured the chemicals.
“It’s taken a long time to get to this point. It’s been a year, and we’ve been trying to start discovery,” Silver Golub & Teitell partner Ian Sloss told the Connecticut Law Tribune. “This a great step towards that, and we look forward to getting moving again,” he said.
The lawsuit, Ryan et al. v. Greif Inc et al, is pending in the US. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
