One year after reaching a settlement between the Rocky Flats Site and homeowners near the nuclear plant, the final orders were issued by US District Court Judge John Kane. The dispute began in 1989 and is considered one of the longest running cases in the United States.
As many as 15,000 homeowners in a 16 square-mile area near Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refugee may qualify for part of the settlement. If you were a home owner as of June 7th 1989 in the specified area, you may be eligible for compensation after the compensation process begins.
Louise Roselle and Paul De Marco are two of the lawyers from Markovits, Stock & DeMarco who represented the residents of Rocky Flats that were harmed by the downwind affects from the Rocky Flats plant. While our team has worked on many other cases regarding nuclear facility sites, including Fernald, Hanford, Mound, Piketon, and Cotter Mill, the Rocky Flats case is the largest nuclear settlement the firm has settled.
Recently, the final orders were shared in a story by Law Week Colorado. You can read a copy of the article here.
