Wayne Curry Leads Class-Action Suit On Pollution
Former Prince George's County Executive and lawyer Wayne Curry, right, is taking the lead on a class action lawsuit brought by an upscale Anne Arundel County community over water contamination. The suit is from residents of Gambrills and Crofton and is against Constellation Energy Group, which buried 4.5 million tons of toxic fly ash on an 80-acre site without warning homeowners. The local groundwater is now contaminated with arsenic and other metals and was a source of drinking water for some of the community residents.
It is being reported that this is Mr. Curry's first litigation since leaving office. The suit could include as many as 5,000 Crofton and Gambrills residents. (The Washington Post)
