In the ever-evolving world of Superfund, 2021 saw significant developments in caselaw and policy. Those changes included policy shifts by the EPA under President Biden such as an increased EPA focus on environmental justice, a Circuit Court decision rejecting long-standing EPA guidance on release reporting, a U.S. Supreme Court decision on whether a Clean Water Act settlement triggered the CERCLA statute of limitations, and, among many others, even the return of the Superfund taxes. These developments pose new questions, create new hurdles, and present new opportunities for companies. What will 2022 hold?
Watch Sidley lawyers Samuel B. Boxerman, Brittany A. Bolen, Nicole E. Noëlliste, and Jack Raffetto discuss the past, present, and future of Superfund in light of the 2021 developments.
