Natural Resource Damage and Environmental Contamination

As Special Assistant Attorneys General for the State of Oregon, Stoll Berne attorneys Keith Ketterling, Jen Wagner, Keil Mueller, Steve Larson, Elizabeth Bailey, and Emily Johnson are currently working with Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum and attorneys from the Oregon Department of Justice to pursue claims against Monsanto seeking recovery for damage caused to Oregon’s wildlife and environment by polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Monsanto is the sole manufacturer and distributor of the PCBs at issue. The $4.5 billion lawsuit seeks damages for remediation the State has already performed to remove PCBs from the State’s sediments and waters, and damages for future clean-up that will be required. The State also seeks damages for PCB related harm to the State’s environment and wildlife.
