PCB lawsuit hearing
New York Lawyers for the Public Interest filed a lawsuit against the DOE and SCA alleging that thousands of light fixtures across New York City are leaking highly toxic PCBs in violation of federal law, thereby endangering the health of NYC schoolchildren and school staff. In response, the DOE and SCA filed a motion to dismiss the complaint in its entirety. This Friday, April 13 at 11 a.m., New York Lawyers for the Public Interest and co-council will present oral arguments against the city’s motion to dismiss the case. The DOE’s own testing of lighting in schools has consistently found visible leaks, which suggests that schools across the city have similarly high rates of leaks. Despite community outcry, the DOE and SCA have no plans to remove these lights in less than ten years. The courtroom will be open to the public.
The event will start on: 13/Apr 11:00 am And will end on: 13/Apr 1:00 pm.
