Original Lawsuit Filed in 2008

In 2008, the United States Environmental Protection Agency recognized the damage caused to the McCook Field neighborhood. Those who caused the damage need to be held accountable for the damages and injuries they caused.

The original class action lawsuit was filed Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2008 in the Court of Common Pleas, Montgomery County. The class includes all persons who live in, or who have spent significant time in, neighborhoods near the plant, located about two miles from downtown Dayton at 1600 Webster Street.

The original lawsuit was put on hold pending the outcome of the bankruptcy case by Chrysler, LLC, which now has been settled.

 “Our clients are angry and they are scared. This danger has been known about since 1998, yet a decade later major questions have yet to be answered. Those who created the problem have yet to assume full responsibility. Our lawsuit begins the process of holding the wrongdoers responsible for their disregard of the health and safety of these residents and the community,” said Rob Jenner with Janet, Jenner & Suggs.
