Today the New Jersey Supreme Court declined to review a January 2016 Appellate Division ruling that a Gloucester County family, the Sullivans, must pay part of the $4 million fine and $2 million cleanup cost arising from mercury contamination at the Kiddie Kollege Daycare Center. They had acquired the old thermometer plant and converted it to a Daycare Center without removing the building's toxic mercury. Over 100 babies, toddlers and children were exposed. The building was closed by the State in 2006 and a few yeas later was razed.
For more on the story of the class action filed on behalf of the children by myself and my co-counsel, see the next blog.
