Moritz alum Rob Bilott was recently depicted in the movie ‘Dark Waters’ for his work against the DuPont chemical company, fo their role in poisoning the drinking water nearby.

In a recent lawsuit, Bilott helped settle an $83 million lawsuit in a PFOA multi district that resolved approximately 95 individual cases as well as un-filed cases. The lawsuit dealt with “forever” chemicals that can cause major health concerns if ingested.

“We are pleased to be able to resolve these personal injury claims for our clients … in a way that provides compensation without the need for additional lengthy and expensive trials,” Bilott told the Environmental Working Group.
