CERCLA Today: Case Law, EPA Activity, Contribution, Allocation and More!

June 3, 2014 • Webinar

Are you current on the latest developments in CERCLA (Superfund) law…?

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, or “Superfund”), is a comprehensive scheme meant to establish the rights and responsibilities of parties involved in actual or threatened releases of hazardous substances. Seminal cases like Burlington Northern & S.F. R. Co. v. U.S. and U.S. v. Atlantic Research were supposed to answer lingering CERCLA questions related to cost recovery, contribution, arranger liability, and divisibility. However, over the years, unanswered questions continue to mount on the application of CERCLA, preemption issues, and allocation. The forthcoming CTS Corp. v. Waldburger case will surely answer some of these questions while undoubtedly raising others!

Register today for this CLE webcast on CERCLA and listen to our authoritative panel of environmental attorneys discuss the hottest topics in CERCLA liability today. Recent decisions and forthcoming ones will be examined by the panel. The faculty will also offer best practices for minimizing CERCLA liability.
