About Camp Lejeune Contamination
Camp Lejeune, a U.S. Marine Corps base, was the site of toxic contamination of drinking water for several decades. More particularly, residents were exposed to harmful chemicals in the water between 1953 and 1987. Contaminants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and industrial solvents were discovered in the base's water supply. Prolonged exposure of living or working at Camp Lejeune to these contaminants has been linked to various types of cancer, including leukemia, lymphoma, bladder cancer, and others, birth defects and other diseases.
Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022
President Biden signed the “Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022” into law. The Act allows military veterans, civilian workers and their families to file civil lawsuits against the U.S. Government for harm caused by at least thirty days of exposure (including in utero exposure) to water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina from August 1, 1953 to December 31, 1987. The Act is extraordinary for several reasons. For example, it made the United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina the exclusive venue for actions brought pursuant to the Act. Also, under the Act, the U.S. Government cannot assert, as it normally would, immunity as a defense. Moreover, the Act overrides the state statute of repose that bars the filing of tort claims after ten years.
