Reece v. AES Corporation

<> Reece v. AES Corporation - 2/9/16. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit, Case No. 14-7010. Plaintiffs' class action suit alleged that several companies were responsible for environmental pollution stemming from the generation and disposal of coal-combustion waste and fluid waste from oil and gas drilling. 
     Plaintiffs challenge the district court's denial of their two motions for remand and also its dismissal of their amended complaint. The Panel ruled: "Because we agree with the district court's disposition of the remand motions and conclude that Plaintiffs failed to adequately allege the element of injury in their amended complaint, we affirm the district court's judgment."
