What’s in your blood? Attorney suing chemical companies wants to know if it can kill you

Attorney who sued DuPont over tainted water takes his case nationwide

In 2018, attorney Rob Bilott filed a lawsuit against corporate entities tied to DuPont — which became defunct in 2017 — as well as 3M and other major chemical companies.

The movie “Erin Brockovich” told the real-life story of a California town whose residents went to court and won big after being exposed to a toxic chemical.

While Cincinnati-based attorney Robert Bilott doesn’t have the same name recognition, he too has a movie dramatizing his courtroom battles. And now he may be on to something even bigger: a fight over a contaminated nation.
