G&E Co-Counsel in PCB Contamination Case Filed by Illinois Attorney General
Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul announced the filing of a lawsuit against Monsanto Co. over its long-term production of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). These toxic substances—many of which were produced in Monsanto’s Sauget, Illinois facility—widely contaminate the state’s natural resources and are a detriment to the environment. The lawsuit alleges the company knew of the dangers that these hazardous chemicals posed, yet denied this knowledge and continued to pollute Illinois’ natural resources for decades. G&E, along with co-counsel, serves as special assistant attorney general.
