North Carolina Supreme Court Requires DuPont’s Successor Companies to Address DuPont’s Potential PFAS Liabilities
The North Carolina Supreme Court affirmed a lower court’s decision that spinoffs of Historic E. I. du Pont de Nemours (“DuPont”), including the Chemours Company (“Chemours”) and Corteva, Inc. (“Corteva”), share in DuPont’s potential PFAS-related liabilities – despite the spinoff companies never conducting business in North Carolina, never operating the plant at issue, and never made, sold, distributed, or discharged PFAS in North Carolina.
