Ruling limits legal remedies for many exposed to Camp Lejeune pollutants

Camp LejeuneThis week, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a North Carolina law limiting the time period in which a plaintiff can seek damages.

The law, called the statute of repose, placed a 10-year limit on which plaintiffs in that state can seek damages from exposure to contaminants, with no exception for latent diseases like the cancer contracted by Partain.

The ruling came in response to a landmark Supreme Court case, CTS Corp. vs. Waldburger.

At issue, say those opposed to the Justice Department position in favor of CTS Corp., is “whether a North Carolina statute could pre-empt federal environmental law to void injury claims of victims harmed by hazardous pollution.”

TVNL Comment:  Corporate interests can pollute, destroy and murder with impunity.  Support the troops.... yeah, right.
