Refineries’ Owners’ Amended Suit Sufficiently Alleges They Incurred Cleanup Costs

Mealey's (July 11, 2018, 1:14 PM EDT) -- BAY CITY, Mich.  — A federal judge in Michigan on July 10 ruled that an amended complaint filed by the owners of 12 refineries that were in operation during World War II that are seeking to recover response costs under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) sufficiently describes what actions the plaintiff companies took to remediate contamination at the sites (MRP Properties LLC, et al. v. United States, No. 17-cv-11174, E.D. Mich., 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 114099).
