Mintz helped GE respond to EPA allegations about its earlier material sales and demand that GE implement a multimillion-dollar cleanup of a federal Superfund Site. Mintz represented GE at trial and on appeal to the First Circuit and caused a change in the remedy GE was required to implement.
Mintz represents GE in a dispute concerning the EPA’s costly proposed remedy for the Housatonic Rest of River, which offers no additional environmental or human health benefit. The EPA Environmental Appeals Board recently took the usual step of remanding EPA’s proposal for further consideration.
Mintz represented a client alleged to be responsible for the contamination of a public water supply. Mintz attorneys led an investigation of the state’s theory, including working with a leading hydrogeologist and locating the client's former employees. The state ultimately abandoned its claims.
Mintz secured two MA federal court wins and one at the First Circuit for Vertex Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and several senior executives in a securities case about clinical trial result disclosures. The decision clarified the First Circuit standard for pleading scienter in securities fraud cases.
