Taft partner Robert A. Bilott was mentioned in two recent articles:
- A Czechoslovakian article on the European Commission's impending ban on PFOA within the European Union. Bilott was one of the lead attorneys in litigation against DuPont involving PFOA contamination in the Mid-Ohio Valley.
- "Advisories issued for C8 Medical Monitoring Program" News and Sentinel
Bilott, who serves as co-lead counsel for the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee handling litigation against DuPont, has been in the spotlight since The New York Times Magazine dubbed him "The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare" in an article published on Jan. 6, 2016. On Feb. 13, 2017, DuPont publicly disclosed that it has reached a settlement in principle to resolve the C-8 personal injury, multi-district litigation now pending in federal court in Columbus, Ohio, for $670.7 million.
Bilott is a member of the firm's Environmental, Litigation and Product Liability and Personal Injury groups, where he represents a diverse range of clients on a wide variety of matters involving federal, state and local environmental laws and related litigation.
