Air Emissions – Carbon Black

Continental Carbon – Phenix City, Alabama and Columbus, Georgia

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the arguments of Continental Carbon Company to reduce the amount of the $20.7 million dollar verdict we obtained on behalf of an individual property owner, a local business and the City of Columbus. Continental Carbon asked U.S. Supreme Court to hear its appeal and the Court refused. We believe the case was decided correctly by both U.S. District Judge Mark Fuller and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and the U. S. Supreme Court has agreed. Click below to read the opinions of both courts rejecting Continental Carbon’s arguments.

What can I do?

Protection of people and their property from large corporate polluters is our top priority. A unique feature of our environmental/toxic tort practice is the ability to represent a large number of people harmed either physically or by damage to their property. Environmental litigation poses unique legal challenges because of the complex scientific and technical issues frequently addressed, and because of the overlapping authority of numerous administrative agencies and courts at the local, state, and federal levels. Environmental cases are probably the most difficult cases to prosecute.

We have worked hard to gain a nationwide reputation in environmental litigation. Again, these are difficult cases, but we are fighting to make a difference.
