Eric Moses, a spokesman for Occidental, said the company had not been served in the lawsuit, and so offered no comment.
Greenpac’s complaint alleges that National Grid and Kimberly-Clark “disposed of, discharged, released, and otherwise arranged for the disposal of radioactive hazardous substances and wastes in various locations at 4400 Royal and/or arranged with (Occidental) or others to do so.”
Greenpac further claims the company “also suffered, is suffering, and will suffer substantial damages and injury with regard to loss of value of its property and other compensatory property damages,” because of the actions and omissions of the defendants. The company hopes to recover the full amount of $50 million, which would include compensation for legal fees incurred during the litigation of the suit, according to the complaint.
