Jacob Grouser, Partner in the Environmental & Toxic Tort Department, published his article "The Appellate Division Clarifies the Law of Nuisance, Trespass and Strict Liability in Connection with Environmental Claims and Denies the Expansion of a Breach of Good Faith and Fair Dealing to Third-Party Insurers" in the Summer 2014 edition of the New Jersey Defense Association newsletter, New Jersey Defense.  The article discusses the Appellate Division's decision to uphold the trial court's decision in Ross v. State Farm Fire & Casualty, et al., which dismissed Plaintiff’s claims against homeowner defendants for trespass and nuisance and claims against the homeowner defendants’ insurers for bad faith that arose from a leaking underground storage tank.
