Clark v. Optical Coating Laboratory, Inc.

Appellate Decision


Appellate court decision upholding dismissal of the State of California from this complex toxic tort case, which was brought by 32 plaintiffs who alleged a multitude of personal injuries from exposure to PCE and TCE. The court reversed Judge Holderman's post-trial dismissal of OCLI, while upholding all evidentiary rulings on motions in limine.

[Nota bene: the case was retried in 2009, in a 4-1/2 month jury trial which resulted in a complete defense verdict].
