Justice System Should Work “The Way It Is Intended To” On PFAS, Lawyer Says

At the third PFAS chemical Congressional hearing this year, a Virginia-based prosecuting attorney said Congress should “let the justice system work the way it is intended to” after uncovering seemingly coordinated efforts between plaintiffs’ lawyers and state prosecutors to sue on similar issues, Legal Newsline reports.

He says declaring PFAS chemicals as “hazardous,” despite little evidence suggesting it actually is, will bring the same result.
