On July 16, 2014, the U.S. District Court of the District of Maryland issued an important Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 6901 et seq. (RCRA), ruling in the case of Sherrill, et al. v. The Mayor and the City Council of Baltimore, 2014 WL 3555956. The City of Baltimore has taken steps to revive and remediate a waterfront property that was the site of a former chemical manufacturing plant. It is conceded that spills and releases of hazardous substances and hazardous wastes have contaminated the site, but the City has entered into an agreement with a casino operator to construct a casino on the property. The matter has been very controversial, causing the plaintiffs in this lawsuit to file a citizen suit under Section 6972 of the RCRA alleging that contaminants are migrating off the property and polluting adjacent properties.
