Why Are Patients Filing Lawsuits?
On August 10, 2022, President Biden has signed the “Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022” (S.3373) into law. The Act allows military veterans and other affected individuals 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 United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina is the exclusive venue for actions brought pursuant to the Act. The Act precludes the U.S. Government from asserting immunity that otherwise would be available in response to litigation. The law also overrides a North Carolina statute of repose that precludes the filing of tort claims after ten years.
