The Clock is Ticking (Maybe): United States v. Guam and its Impact on Settlement Dynamics and CERCLA’s Statutes of Limitations
Thu, June 3, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET
United States v. Guam, currently pending before the United States Supreme Court, will decide when an environmental settlement starts the clock on the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act’s (CERCLA) statute-of-limitations period for cost-recovery and contribution claims. Two issues are involved: (1) whether a non-CERCLA settlement can start the limitations period for a CERCLA claim, and (2) how much liability must be resolved to trigger a CERCLA contribution claim and its three-year limitations period. At this program, our speakers will discuss the potential impact of the decision on the resolution of environmental cases in Indiana and elsewhere, depending on when the court rules following the April 26 argument.
