50-State Survey of Protections Available for Purchasers of Contaminated Property

December 31, 2013

The Subcommittee of Women Environmental Litigators, one of the groups under the umbrella of the American Bar Association Litigation Section’s Environmental Litigation Committee, initiated this 50-state survey to address a question that our members identified as one that frequently arises for environmental litigators and other attorneys who work on projects involving contaminated properties. The question we posed to each of the authors was: describe any statutory or regulatory provisions that your State has which are similar, or have a similar purpose, to the innocent landowner and/or bona fide purchaser protections found in CERCLA.
