Law360 Quotes Paul Napoli on PFOA Water Contamination
September 14, 2018
Tyco Fire Products LP, 3M Co. and other companies that produced a fire suppressant foam have told a Massachusetts federal court that a suit filed by a group of Cape Cod residents claiming the product caused illnesses should be tossed, arguing the allegations couldn’t properly be connected to specific manufacturers.
Paul Napoli of Napoli Shkolnik PLLC, which is representing the residents, said it was absurd for the companies that had contracts to supply the foam to suggest that there wasn’t a sufficient link to sustain the suit. “It just goes to show you that these manufacturers that have polluted hundreds of communities around our country … will come up with any excuse to avoid their responsibility for contaminating America’s water supply,” Napoli said.
