    The Migrating Impact of Vapor Intrusion

    Monday, April 27, 2015

    11:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m.- Central

    12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Eastern

    Description:

    Vapor intrusion issues have become increasingly prevalent in environmental and toxic tort actions, as well as Superfund investigations and cleanups. Recently, there has been a trend of plaintiff's lawyers bringing toxic tort actions against defendants who are not geographically connected to the source of the contamination--which is usually a Superfund site. These cases have huge public policy impacts (e.g., if a distant landowner is held liable to tenants and others for vapor migrating from a distant Superfund site). In addition, EPA is promulgating new guidance regarding vapor intrusion which will have wide applicability to virtually any Superfund (or other cleanup sites) where volatile organics are present. This is an issue of great interest to members of both Environmetal Litigation and Toxic Torts, Superfund and Natural Resources Damages Litigation committees, and others.
