The Summary
AlterEcho allocation expert David Batson provides litigation support to help sort out the complexities in a challenging pollution case centered on uranium mining activities related to the World War II-era Manhattan Project.
The Client
A privately-held energy company
The Rundown
David developed an innovative allocation methodology based on the volume of waste material created by various parties at several mining sites.
Data were developed and then compiled to establish an allocation recommendation for the combined mine sites.
David successfully defended his expert opinion and clarified his reasoning and allocation methodology in a deposition conducted by the Department of Justice.
+ David also assisted the litigation team as a consultant on negotiation strategy and participated on their behalf in a court-recommended mediation which greatly narrowed the issues in dispute, and resulted in an agreement to obtain additional data regarding the site remediation from US EPA.
