Environment - "No preemption for state statutes of repose"
Amy Howe of SCOTUSBlog writes on today's opinion in a post that begins:
In CTS Corp. v. Waldburger, the Court held that North Carolina’s statute of repose is not preempted by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) – commonly known as the Superfund law – which instead only preempts state statutes of limitations on bringing state law environmental tort cases.
