Allen v. The Boeing Co.

<> Allen v. The Boeing Co. - 4/27/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, Case No. 15-35162. Plaintiffs sued Boeing and Landau Associates in State court alleging that for over forty years they released toxins into the groundwater around its facility in Auburn, Washington and failed in their investigation and remediation.
     In a dispute over whether State or Federal Court was appropriate the Appeals Court ruled in part, "We hold that Plaintiffs' action does not come within the local single event exception to CAFA, and that, therefore, the district court has federal jurisdiction under CAFA."
