Energy facility facing class action litigation over odors

Companies can often face complaints about the ways in which they conduct their operations. In some cases, nearby residents may claim that businesses are making it difficult for the residents to live their lives because of the noise, odor or light pollution that some commercial properties emit. In some cases, those who believe they are affected may file legal claims and try to move forward with class action litigation.

Florida readers may be interested in a class action suit was that recently filed in another state. According to reports, two residents who live near an energy facility claim that the odors emanating from the facility are making it difficult for people to use their own property as freely as they would like. The lawsuit is looking to include all residents who live within two miles of the energy facility.

The facility reportedly turns agricultural waste and industrial food waste into natural gas. The claimants believe that the company is negligent by allowing the odors to permeate the area. The lawsuit also stated that the company had received notices regarding violations from the state's Department of Environmental Quality. The report did not include any comment from the energy facility.

When companies are faced with lawsuits regarding environmental violations, they may need to gain information on the exact claims as well as their defense options. Florida companies that are facing class action litigation may want to make sure that they understand the details of their cases in hopes of effectively moving forward. Discussing their predicaments with knowledgeable attorneys could allow them to gain reliable information on their legal options.
