A few months ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decided the case of CTS Corp. v. Waldburger, 134 S. Ct. 2175 (2014), and held that the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, 94 Stat. 2767, as amended, 42 U.S.C. §§ 9601 et seq. (CERCLA), the federal Superfund statute, does not preempt state statutes of repose such as the North Carolina 10 year statute of repose. For example, North Carolina's "statute prevents subjecting a defendant to a tort suit brought more than 10 years after the last culpable act of the defendant. N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 1-52(16) (Lexis 2013) ('[N]o cause of action shall accrue more than 10 years from the last act or omission of the defendant giving rise to the cause of action'); Robinson v. Wadford, ___ N.C.App. ___, ___, 731 S.E.2d 539, 541 (2012) (referring to the provision as a "statute of repose")." The Waldburger decision imperiled toxic tort lawsuits that were filed against the United States on behalf of many plaintiffs who alleged that the drinking water at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina was contaminated.
