In 2016, eight residents of Bennington and North Bennington sued Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corporation (“Saint-Gobain”) for the presence of a chemical called Perfluorooctanoic Acid (“PFOA”) on and under their properties and, for those with private wells, in their drinking water. These eight residents (the “Representative Plaintiffs”) brought this suit on behalf of all residents that have been similarly harmed by the toxic chemical, PFOA, which they claim Saint-Gobain released into the atmosphere over the years it operated in Vermont. Once released, they claim the PFOA contaminated the soil and many private wells in the area. This class action lawsuit  continues today, with David F. Silver of BarrSternberg co-counsel on the claim. He joins   Emily J. Joselson of Langrock Sperry & Wool, LLP in Middlebury, VT and Gary A. Davis Gary and James S. Whitlock of Davis & Whitlock, PC in Ashville, NC.
