Public Justice vs. Pollution

When the actions of corporations endanger the environment, it is sometimes necessary to take legal action to stop companies from causing pollution and other natural disasters. Here are two recent examples of such cases.

Factory Farms

Mega dairies in Washington were contaminating local water supply with toxic sewage. A court found that the millions of gallons of manure stored by dairies in unlined lagoons must be regulated as solid waste under the federal environmental statute.

Fracking in Oklahoma

Seismologists have reported more than 5,000 earthquakes in Oklahoma in 2014, and even more in 2015. Waste from oil extraction and fracking operations is injected into the ground and is causing the increase. Class action lawyers recently filed a lawsuit targeting natural gas companies for their role in Oklahoma’s earthquake problem.
