2nd Circuit Says Hoosick Falls PI Claims Are Fair Game
May 19, 2020
The ruling affirms Judge Kahn’s 2017 decision to allow claims by residents of the Village of Hoosick Falls, New York, for damages related to medical monitoring to advance, as well as their personal injury, property damage, trespass and nuisance claims. The residents say they ingested PFOA-laced water as a result of contamination from one or more Saint-Gobain or Honeywell manufacturing facilities that operated at various times within the village. Several of the residents have elevated levels of PFOA in their blood, according to the suits.
