Environmental Contamination

11/16/2006 - $25,000,000.00

Glynn County Board of Commissioners v. Allied/Honeywell, Superior Court of Glynn County, Georgia. A settlement was obtained for Glynn County for environmental damages to nine parcels of county property, including a county-owned park on Blythe Island and portions of the historic Altamaha Canal. The southeast Georgia county sued Allied, now Honeywell, for thousands of pounds of mercury and PCB Aroclor 1268 discharged by Allied from its chlor-alkali chemical plant into the Turtle River and the adjacent marshes.

In addition to the cash payment, Honeywell International, Inc. was also required to immediately commence efforts to pump and treat a large underground pool of caustic brine and other chemicals that leaked from its plant during operations there and that now endanger the groundwater and aquifers under the former chemical plant site.

I was in a complex premises liability case involving a multinational corporations. Mr. Butler & his associates were always three steps ahead of these defendants. When they say they are "exceptional trial lawyers," this is not just a slogan but it is a way of life.”
