New Jersey DEP loses Natural Resources Damage appeal

If you are a company or attorney fighting a Natural Resource Damages claim brought by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), you may take heart in an appeals court ruling that denied the DEP $8 million it was seeking under the Spill Act.

In a bulletin to clients, Cole Schotz environmental attorney Douglas I. Eilender explains the background to the NJDEP v. Essex Chemical Corp case that the Department was appealing, why the appellate court ruled against the DEP, and what the decision could mean for others subject to similar environmental  damage claims.

You can read Mr. Eilender's summary here.
