Law360, New York (August 17, 2011, 7:14 PM EDT) -- A New Jersey federal judge on Wednesday dismissed some of the claims in a $20 million environmental remediation suit against Honeywell International Inc., ruling the plaintiffs could not make both cost recovery and contribution claims under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act.
U.S. District Judge Peter G. Sheridan found that the plaintiffs — developers voluntarily cleaning up a site contaminated by a Honeywell predecessor — could sue for cost recovery but not contribution. He also dismissed a nuisance claim.
