August, 2003 – Environmental and legal experts from around the country are characterizing the $700 Million global settlement of the PCB damage claims of over 20,000 current and former residents of Calhoun County, Alabama as the most significant settlement of toxic tort damage claims in American history. Three months of settlement talks spearheaded by Beasley Allen in their 17,000 plaintiff Federal court case, eventually led to a global resolution of not only that case, but also the long-running state court trial in Gadsden, Alabama that involved more than 3,000 additional plaintiffs.
