Current Cases

Climate Change

On behalf of leading Pennsylvania environmental non-profit Clean Air Council and two Pennsylvania children, Hausfeld brought pro bono litigation against the federal government to combat its sweeping rollbacks of critical climate change protections. 

Successes

ALS Toluene Case

Hausfeld Partner James Gotz, while at his prior firm, successfully led the prosecution of a wrongful death case alleging that a college head football coach was exposed to neurotoxic levels of Toluene (used to resurface the college gym floor) which led to the early onset and accelerated (and fatal) course of the coach’s ALS. 

Investigations

Boston Youth Tobacco Litigation

Led by James Gotz and Steve Rotman, Hausfeld’s Mass Tort group is actively prosecuting individual catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts against the Tobacco manufacturers on behalf of lifelong smokers targeted with free cigarettes and addicted to the nicotine as children, and now recently diagnosed with smoking-related lung cancer or COPD.
