    Defeating Giants: Clean Water and DuPont’s Downfall on May 10, 2018 · 12:15 PM

    Robert Bilott is one of the world’s finest environmental lawyers. With a combination of innovative litigation, scientific understanding, and extraordinary perseverance, he has achieved one of the most significant victories for environmental law and corporate accountability of this century. In a legal battle lasting 19 years, he represented 70,000 citizens whose drinking water had been contaminated with Perfluorooctanic acid (PFOA) by the chemical giant DuPont.  This talk is part of the Hayward Social and Environmental Speaker Series, co-hosted by the Center for the Blue Economy.
