Judge Noel L. Hillman of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey denied Solvay’s motion to dismiss Plaintiffs’ tort claims stemming from alleged Teflon-related PFAS contamination, finding the putative class had sufficiently pled its claims and demonstrated standing. Judge Hillman only dismissed Plaintiffs’ punitive damages claim, leaving their other claimed damages—bodily, economic, and property-related—intact.
