Combe Fill South Landfill National Priorities List Site

When the EPA and the State of New Jersey brought a US$200 million claim for recovered landfill remediation and NRD costs, O’Melveny lawyers assumed the role of common counsel for the 14 defendants. We initiated third-party claims against more than 300 parties, secured removal of the case to an alternative dispute resolution allocation proceeding, entered settlements with governmental authorities, and reduced the governments’ cost demands through intervention in related litigation.
