On February 2, 2024, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington denied Monsanto’s Motion for Summary Judgment in ongoing PCB litigation. Stoll Berne and co-counsel at Keller Rohrback represent the City of Seattle in this suit and seek to hold Monsanto accountable for the harms that Monsanto’s PCBs have caused to the City’s stormwater and drainage system and the Lower Duwamish Waterway.

Stoll Berne attorneys Steve Larson, Emily Johnson and Maddie Holmes were primarily responsible for the expansive briefing on the detailed and complex factual and legal issues that persuaded the Court to find in Seattle’s favor and reject all of Monsanto’s arguments.

Trial is set for September 23, 2024.
