9th Circuit Reverses; Company May Recover Perchlorate Cleanup Expenses

(June 14, 2016, 9:56 AM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — A panel of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on June 13 reversed and remanded a lower court ruling and held that a company was permitted to bring an action for recovery of costs for perchlorate contamination of groundwater because it was an action to recover expenses that are separate from those involved in a previous lawsuit pertaining to the same incident (Whittaker Corporation v. United States of America, No. 14-55385, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 10660).
