In a recent decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the 3d Circuit, the Court examined the impact of a settlement or a resolution of a claim by a state upon claims for contribution by other PRPs and claims by the United States EPA under Superfund. This presentation will provide an overview of that decision, a general discussion of Superfund liability and the Alabama Brownfield law, and some strategies to ensure that the liability protection provided by the Alabama Brownfields law acts is an effective liability shield.
