As a Fort Worth Toxic Tort Groundwater contamination attorney I am providing this update on the Camp Lejeune litigation.
A former Marine has filed a $16 million lawsuit against the federal government, claiming that contaminated water at Camp Lejeune caused him to contract a rare form of breast cancer.
It is the latest damage claim in a long-running dispute between former residents and the Marine Corps over the polluted water.
Wells at the base were contaminated by fuel leaks and other sources of pollution before being closed two decades ago. Health officials think as many as 1 million people may have been exposed to tainted water.
