Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson Seeks Parties for Class Action Against Tullytown PA Landfill

Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson recently sent out letters to residents across Florence NJ and highlighted the problems posed by a landfill in Tullytown, Pennsylvania.

The Florence residents, who are subject to noxious odors and fumes from a landfill which is situated across the Delaware River, have been invited to join a class-action lawsuit. According to KCR partner Kevin Riechelson, the firm hopes to garner as large a class as possible because “it’s pretty much impossible for anyone to do it on an individual basis.”

Residents in Florence have been complaining to Waste Management, the company that owns the landfill, for some time about the strong odors coming from the site. Residents have also been calling government hotlines to voice their concerns.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection finally responded to the complaints last month by opening an investigation into the landfill.

Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson, which has offices in Trenton NJ and Bensalem PA, has partnered with Liddle & Dubin, a law firm based out of Detroit MI which specializes in these kinds of environmental class actions.
Both firms have taken the initiative to help affected parties take legal action against the owners and operators of the Tullytown landfill.

The lawsuit aims to secure compensation for residents who have been forced to endure the noxious odors. Beyond that, KCR hopes that the class action will result in an injunction being issued so that Waste Management will be required to clean up the landfill and take measures needed to prevent the offensive odors from carrying across the river.

Class Action Against Tullytown Landfill

The partners of Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson have teamed up with a Detroit law firm to investigate pursuing a class action lawsuit against the Tullytown Landfill for noxious odors that are affecting surrounding communities. The noxious odors are also substantially diminishing the residents’ enjoyment of their homes.

We are focusing on residents in Roebling and Florence, New Jersey. We are also focusing on residents in Levittown, Pennsylvania. Depending upon the response from these areas, the lawsuit may expand to some additional townships.

If you, or anyone you know, has been affected by the odors from the Tullytown Landfill, you are entitled to join the lawsuit against them.

KCR Represents Victim of Child Sexual Abuse in Lawsuit Against American Boychoir

Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson partner Jerrold Kamensky is stepping up the pressure in his second case against the American Boychoir.

This is another case brought on behalf of an adult male who was sexually abused while a student at the American Boychoir (formerly Columbus Boychoir) in Princeton, NJ. The case is unusual because the abuse occurred more than 40 years ago. Nonetheless, KCR is moving to have the Statute of Limitations extended pursuant to New Jersey’s unique laws concerning sexual abuse cases.

New Jersey sexual abuse laws allow for the statute of limitations to be tolled, or stopped, until such time as the victim knew that he had been sexually abused. In these kinds of cases, the traumatic nature of the injury means that the victim often does not become aware of the injuries until adulthood.

Jerrold Kamensky is passionate about protecting the legal rights of childhood sexual abuse victims. Says Kamensky: “We have successfully argued in the past that children bury the knowledge of their pain and its harm, which then surfaces in adulthood in dangerous behaviors such as drug use, alcohol abuse, or high-risk sexual conduct. It is not always immediately clear to the victim that the origins of their behavior are an outgrowth of that original assault. A ruined life because of adult exploitation of an innocent is arguably the worst kind of assault to another human being. We cannot change what happened, but we can seek some relief and peace for the adult survivor of childhood sexual abuse.”

KCR Recovers 2 Million for Pedestrian Injured in Princeton NJ

Kamensky Cohen & Riechelson partners Jerrold Kamensky and Kevin Riechelson recently represented a client in an auto accident case. Our client, an undocumented alien, was crossing Witherspoon Street in Princeton NJ when he was struck by a car. The crash caused our client to suffer a traumatic brain injury.

During negotiations with the defense attorneys, we cited pedestrian accident law in New Jersey. We also presented a highly technical settlement proposal to the top ladder of the defendant’s insurance company. Ultimately, our client got the compensation he deserved and was able to return to his family in Guatemala. He is now residing comfortably in the care of his wife and children.
