Erin Brockovich: Part 3 Going To Trial
Fate dropped Erin Brockovich's latest lawsuit against Beverly Hills High right into her lap.
It all began several years ago when Brockovich was in New York promoting her memoir, Take It From Me: Life's a Struggle But You Can Win. During a book signing, she met a young woman named Lori Moss, who had just finished a form of chemotherapy. When Brockovich asked the Beverly Hills native if she had cancer, Moss explained that she had thyroid cancer and Hodgkin's disease, a combination that was alarming to Brockovich.

After talking with Moss for a while, Brockovich took down her number for future reference. A few months later, the topic of Beverly Hills came up in conversation when someone suggested that Brockovich look into a situation at Beverly Hills High School. Having been approached with the topic twice now, Brockovich took action.

"I started making calls and eventually got a hold of an Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] 2001 newsletter from one of our experts in the mail. It stated that the oil industry has cleverly masked its oil operations amid the glamour of Beverly Hills High School," said Brockovich. "The letter disclosed that there was an onshore oil platform at Beverly Hills High that had 18 operational well heads and one of those well heads is directionally drilled a mile and a half underneath Rodeo Drive."

"Furthermore, what many people don't know is that 10 feet away from the high school, Sempra Energy has a major power plant," reported Brockovich. "Our experts have already concluded that based on all the data from the oil wells, which are producing benzene, and from Sempra Energy producing hexavalent chromium and dioxin, there is a significant statistical increased risk of Hodgkin's, thyroid, and testicular cancer from the school and from that area."

Everyone Loves LawCrossing

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
