Current Cases of Interest

  • ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION – A POISONED CHURCH – Mount Canaan Full Gospel Church v. Kerr-McGee, et. al., Jefferson Co. AL, 06-CV-2315

Kerr-McGee operated a bulk petroleum facility on property adjacent to the property of Mount Canaan Full Gospel Church and its school. In August 2000, the state environmental agency determined that a petroleum release occurred on the Kerr-McGee property which resulted in soil and air contamination of the church’s property. During the ensuing years, due to continued concealment and inadequate remediation efforts by Kerr-McGee, the contamination of the church’s property (including school) has reached toxic levels which are dangerous and harmful to exposed humans. As a result, the school has been closed and the church employees and congregation will have to relocate.

  • IONIZATION SMOKE DETECTORS – 90% OF RESIDENTIAL SMOKE DETECTORS WILL NOT TIMELY WARN OF THE MOST DANGEROUS HOUSE FIRES – Pat Holland v. Kidde, Inc., et. al., USDC, ND Ala., 05-CV-0325

A young mother died in a house fire when smoke detectors failed to give a timely warning. All of the smoke detectors were of the ionization-only type, which detector manufacturers have long known is extremely insensitive to slow-smoldering fires that may smolder for hours before bursting into flame.  Slow-smoldering fires are the single most deadly type of house fire, and smoke detectors should be most suited to detect these types of fires as they tend to develop over a long period of time and only reach life-threatening levels after people have gone to sleep.  Alternative technology has existed for over thirty years (and is sold by the defendants) which gives a vastly superior response to these slow-smoldering fires.  Despite the availability of this safer technology, the defendants have continued to sell the ionization-only detector as an adequate stand-alone fire detection device without adequately informing the American public of the differences in technology.
