On September 26, 2012, in perhaps the most significant New Jersey environmental decision in the last thirty years, the New Jersey Supreme Court in New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection v. Dimant dealt a major blow to the NJDEP’s strategy of pursuing business owners for cleanup costs under New Jersey’s Spill Compensation and Control Act without sufficient evidence linking those businesses to the contamination and alleged damage at issue.

On Wednesday, November 28 at 12:00-1:00 p.m., Jerry English participated in a roundtable webinar to discuss this recent decision, its implications for future cleanup efforts, and the burden of proving causation that the decision imposes.
