Temple Inland Paper Mill Spill March Status Update
The Plaintiff's Steering Committee ("PSC") is still engaged in adversarial discovery process. Many more samples and tests are still required to know the scope of the loss of fish and wildlife, the impact on the commercial fisherman, land owners, water quality and associated use rights. Our objective is to determine the effects of the release(s) and the content(s) of the release(s) through our experts.
On February 15, 2012, we filed our First Amended Master Class Action Complaint and included all insurance companies providing coverage for Defendant. A Status Conference has been set before the Honorable Lance Africk in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana for April 13, 2012 at 7:30 a.m. If you have any updated documentation to support your claim, please be sure to get that information to my office at your earliest convenience. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
