Professor Lin Comments for Reuters and The Recorder on Lead Paint Nuisance Case

Professor Albert Lin commented for Reuters and The Recorder on People v. Atlantic Richfield Co. et al, a case in which public attorneys for ten cities and counties seek to hold five companies liable for removing lead-based paint from millions of home across California.

"There's going to be a lot of factual argument and questions about whether the evidence is enough to show knowledge on the parts of the defendants, and whether the level of interference is substantial enough at this point to warrant a finding of public nuisance," Lin told Reuters.

Albert Lin is a professor at the UC Davis School of Law with special interests in environmental law, natural resources law, and evidence.
