Connecticut AG Filed Lawsuit against Chemical Companies for PFAS Contamination

Connecticut Attorney General William Tong filed a lawsuit against 28 chemical manufacturing companies, including 3M and DuPont, for manufacturing products that contained per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) despite knowing the dangers these “forever chemicals” pose to human health and the environment. The lawsuit sought monetary penalties, as well as requirements for the companies to “dispose of their toxic chemical stocks, abate all pollution in Connecticut, disclose all research, and to compensate the state for past and future remediation and testing expenses.”
