About the Book
This Second Edition updates you on this rapidly changing area of law. It serves as a practical guide for the environmental and toxic tort lawyer on issues that have been litigated extensively since the 1986 passage of amendments to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), better known as Superfund. The book outlines the compliance process and discusses liability issues and defense strategies. Experienced practitioners advise you on civil and criminal enforcement under the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. You will also learn about:
causes of action and potential defenses in citizen suits
liability and damage theories in toxic tort litigation
strategies for litigating multiple-plaintiff suits
use of experts in post-Daubert litigation
insurance issues in environmental litigation
The guide includes a topical index and table of cases.
