Environmental Damage and Toxic Exposure

This case was the first jury trial in Colorado to award the cost of cleaning up the contamination as part of the damages. In Orjias et al. v. Louisiana-Pacific, a three week trial resulted in the March 1992 jury verdict for $2.3 million, including $1.8 million in punitive damages for families in Olathe who lived next to a waferboard facility which emitted formaldehyde, MDI and wood particulates. In NWIS, the Firm won a $1.8 million jury verdict on behalf of an owner of industrial property located next to the Leyden Underground Natural Gas Storage facility operated by Public Service Company.
