Client Advisory: Supreme Court Allows PRPs to Sue For Cost Recovery After Voluntary Cleanups

In this Client Advisory, Partners Robert L. Graham, Gabrielle Sigel and Associates Sarah M. Cane and Katherine Rahill discuss the June 11, 2007 Supreme Court decision, which held that a potentially responsible party ("PRP") can bring a cost recovery action under Section 107(a) of the Superfund Law after voluntarily cleaning up a contaminated site, even when an action for contribution under Section 113(f) of the Superfund Law cannot be brought.
