trial testimony for remediation-cost dispute

trial testimony for remediation-cost dispute
confidential client
Midwestern U.S.

At a property located within the campus of a major university, contaminated water was discovered and cleaned up by the former owner. Believing Barr’s client, a historic tenant at the site, to be responsible for the contamination, the former owner sued for the cost of the remediation. Barr provided testimony at trial regarding the cleanup. We testified that the remediation was not compliant with state and federal requirements and that our client had no responsibility for the cleanup costs. A judgment was issued in favor of our client, resulting in a savings of millions of dollars.
