More frequently than ever, private owners of contaminated sites have good economic reasons for cleaning up the sites, regardless of any concern on the part of a government agency. And, once having undertaken the costs of cleanup, they naturally seek reimbursement of cleanup costs from those who are responsible for the contamination. "Private Cost Recovery Actions Under CERCLA" examines the law and policy of private cost recovery actions under Superfund. "Private Cost Recovery Actions Under CERCLA" explores the relationship between CERCLAs liability provision and the statutes contribution provision, a relationship that has caused substantial difficulty for courts and practitioners. Moreover, it gives practical advice to the attorneys and courts that must deal with the complexities and high transaction costs of contribution litigation. Anyone involved in the morass of CERCLA contribution litigation will benefit from Professor John Hyson's measured analysis and coherent advice.
