President Biden recently signed an executive order which in part, is intended to address climate change on a domestic and international level. In the Order, President Biden directs the Secretary of Agriculture to encourage adoption of climate smart agricultural practices that produce verifiable carbon reductions and sequestrations. While these practices will certainly include revisiting and updating agricultural best practices to reduce or remove the risks of pesticide and herbicide contamination in soil, water and human consumption of food, changes and restrictions on industrial meat production, and reduction in a reliance on fossil-fuel based fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides could have unintended effects, including an increased use of these chemicals in general, and particularly on crops used in meat substitutes.

PROPOSAL FOR FETTI 2021 CONFERENCE: Current State of Legacy Litigation and Related Insurance Issues So called “legacy” lawsuits are prevalent in oil producing states such as Louisiana and Texas. The lawsuits involve claims by landowners against oil and gas contractors, operators and related entities for damages to their property due to years of exploration activities that allegedly led to pollution and other environmental conditions that must be remediated and/or caused economic damages. Typically, plaintiffs seek damages for tens of millions of dollars for both economic loss and costs to remediate property, which sometimes involves unproven scientific theories. In addition, the allegations of negligence, and sometimes gross negligence, touch companies, and their respective insurers for several years up the chain of ownership. While some of those companies are no longer in business, the insurers are still potentially liable for the loss. This 60-minute presentation will address the elements of a legacy claim, potential areas of damages, available defenses, regulatory concerns and insurance coverage issues that may arise with these lawsuits. The lecture will also include a PowerPoint presentation. A general outline of the presentation is as follows: I. Introduction - Speaker and firm background II. Elements of a Legacy Claim - Negligence - Strict Liability - Gross Negligence - Continuing Nuisance & Trespass - Break of Oil and Gas Leases and/or State Mineral Code III. Elements of Damages - Unjust Enrichment/Civil Fruits - Environmental Assessment - Punitive/Exemplary Damages - Stigma Damages - Injunctive Relief IV.

Claims professionals continue to see an increased trend in claims resulting from new regulations as well as new and more stringent clean-up standards for PFAS compounds, some of which include the following chemicals: perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), perfluoroheptanoic acid (PFHpA), and perfluorohexanesulfonic acid (PFHxS). The panel will provide a discussion of the contaminants described above, emerging state and federal regulations, and how and why those regulations are evolving nationwide. They will also discuss what the industry can expect in the future as regulations continue to evolve and clean-up standards become better defined. Attendees will learn how these emerging regulations are impacting the insurance market and underwriters, the effect they have on increasing frequency of pollution claims (especially in states with more stringent regulations), and what to watch out for as new claims emerge. Claim examples from various states for the contaminants described will be presented, including lessons learned. Topic #2 USTs: Regulatory Updates & Impacts on Insurers (sample presentation attached, would be updated/revised for this event) Underground storage tanks (USTs) are arguably the greatest pollution threat to groundwater nationwide and represent one of the most frequent pollution incidents creating claims for insurers. These UST systems have evolved from simple concrete and steel riveted tanks built in the late 1800s - early 1900s to today’s complex systems built with space-age materials and designed to detect and prevent spills responsive to new and changing regulations. Although, state funds pay for the vast majority of the site pollution investigation and clean ups caused by leaking USTs, insurance is the primary mechanism UST owners and operators use to satisfy financial responsibility requirements when state funding is not available. This presentation will educate attendees on the history of UST regulations; significance of the new regulations; changes in UST equipment that prevents releases to the environment, and customary clean-up technologies, time frames, and costs. Speakers will address the recent changes to regulations requiring specialized UST operator training certification, increased inspections, and additional testing and reporting requirements which went into effect October 13, 2018 for most states. In addition, attendees will learn about the common sources and causes of UST leaks as well as improved remedial technologies that can shorten remedial timeframes. Recent trends will be presented which show the impact of stricter UST regulations on operators and their effect on insurer risks, as well as the potential for growth in the tank insurance marketplace.

Even sites with known contamination and remediation expense were able to purchase hundreds of millions of retroactive environmental insurance limits for unexpected environmental liabilities.

One of the greatest area of disagreement between the various parties is the source and extent of the contamination. The Supreme Court has just made resolving these issues far more difficult by their ruling last year in the case of County of Maui v. Hawaii Wildlife Fund, 140 S. Ct. 1462 (2020) (“Maui”). In this case Tthe County of Maui operates four wells at the Lahaina Wastewater Reclamation Facility on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The facility functions by gathering sewage from the surrounding area, treating it, and under a permit Injecting approximately 3 to 5 million gallons of wastewater per day directly into groundwater. A test to determine if this wastewater entered the ocean showed that after 80+ days the wastewater traveled roughly half a mile to the Pacific Ocean. The case resolved various federal courts divided on the question of whether a “discharge of a pollutant” is subject to the Clean Water Act (“CWA”) occurs when a pollutant is released from a point source and subsequently moves through groundwater before reaching a “water of the United States” which then would require a CWA Section 402 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program. The Maui decision outlines seven non-exclusive factors for the regulated community and permitting authorities to consider when evaluating whether a discharge of a pollutant from a point source that travels through groundwater to a water of the United States is the “functional equivalent” of a direct discharge from a point source to a water of the United States. Going through this process is going to be expensive and legally challenging endeavor. How one approaches this is going to be critical. We will explain both the scientific an legal issues impacting a policy of insurance. The factors commented on by the Court are: (1) transit time, (2) distance traveled, (3) the nature of the material through which the pollutant travels, (4) the extent to which the pollutant is diluted or chemically changed as it travels, (5) the amount of pollutant entering the navigable waters relative to the amount of the pollutant that leaves the point source, (6) the manner by or area in which the pollutant enters the navigable waters, and (7) the degree to which the pollution (at that point) has maintained its specific identity. Id. at 1476-77. However, the Court explained that the “functional equivalent” analysis can be further refined through court decisions in individual cases—the traditional common-law method—and through EPA administrative actions or guidance. Id. at 1477. The EPA has issued a draft guidance document concerning Maui. A guidance document does not have the force and effect of law and it does not bind the public in any way, rather it is only to provide clarity to the public regarding existing requirements under the law or Agency policies. In the draft guidance document EPA says it has identified an additional factor that may prove relevant and thus should be considered when performing a “functional equivalent” analysis: the design and performance of the system or facility from which the pollutant is released. The CWA, EPA’s regulations, and relevant court decisions provide certain threshold conditions that must be satisfied before the legal obligation to have an NPDES permit is triggered. First, there must be (or will be) an actual discharge of a pollutant to a water of the United States. Second, such a discharge must be from a point source. The Maui decision did not modify these two threshold conditions for triggering NPDES permit applicability. Instead, Maui clarified that an NPDES permit is required for only a subset of discharges of pollutants that reach a water of the United States through groundwater—those that are the “functional equivalent” of direct discharges to jurisdictional waters.

Yes See bios of speakers below. COVID-19 Case Assessment & Handling – Claims and Coverage issues. The panel would focus on analyzing 2 key areas for these claims - business interruption and bodily injury. For business interruption, the panel will review typical standards for business interruption coverage under commercial property policies and how the virus, current legal action, and the unique measures being taken to protect public health and the economy could impact coverage determinations. Attendees will also understand unique valuation issues that may arise in instances where such claims are moving forward and actions parties can take now to develop well-documented claims facilitating both processing and reserve estimation during the expected surge in claims. In the case of the expected wave of bodily injury claims, the panel will review the unique aspects of analysis and investigation needed to assess the validity of such claims against an insured based on validating potential source exposures, causation and mitigation effort defenses. The panel will also address potential immunities offered in some sectors. Overlaying all of these areas is the necessity to stay organized and manage the flood of claims to come.

Title: The elephant in the room: How the confusion with COVID-19 and other outbreaks will impact jurors in asbestos cases going forward Topic Summary: We will address the issues below as they relate to COVID-19, and other outbreaks, to show what we have learned from them on a coverage and defense side and their impact on how defendants try asbestos cases now. • Dose: illustrated by COVID-19 front line workers vs. regular lay people, the dose matters for COVID-19, as it does for asbestos exposures. • Lung Functions/Defenses: COVID-19 has taught a jury about lung defense mechanisms, which can be used to teach the jury on how it compares to asbestos fibers in the lungs. Both involve a reaction of the body to a foreign substance. • Latency: COVID-19 illustrates latency issues, which are difficult for jurors to understand in asbestos cases. • Drift theories: COVID-19 shows how viruses can move around and last, similar to plaintiff’s drift theories. Defense needs to be aware of these issues in fiber drift cases now that the jury has lived through such theories during COVID-19. • The elephant now: the juror’s fear of exposure and how that plays into plaintiff’s every fiber (exposure) counts theory. • Epidemiology: Understanding why there is epidemiologists, and the time it takes to determine the cause of a disease – present time vs. 1950s/60s/70s/80s. • OSHA: How involved it is now with workers in the workplace trying to go back to work and what companies know about OSHA compliance – now vs. 1950s/60s/70s/80s. COVID-19 will show jurors how difficult it can be for a company to ensure it is complying with all OSHA regulations as their employers bring their workers back into the workplace after the stay-at-home orders. • State of the Art- How fast the knowledge and science involving COVID-19 exposures, disease spread, testing, etc. has evolved in one month vs. how long it took to evolve when asbestos was used years ago, and how to handle a juror’s expectation of SOA capabilities now vs. 50s/60s/70s/80s • What expert is right about COVID-19: competing expert opinions over what works and doesn’t, and the state of confusion competing expert opinions create for workers and companies on what to do and what is safe, which brings the juror back to the position of defendants years ago while they were learning of the potential hazards of asbestos. • What impact does the fact that people received money from the government to offset COVID-19 costs have on a plaintiffs’ right to damages? Will it make people think that someone is entitled to damages simply because they got sick? • Will the fact that people received thousands of dollars—and not hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars—to offset COVID-19 costs have any impact on the amount of damages juries are willing to award? • Does the fact that—so far—businesses have not been viewed as being responsible for COVID-19 costs have on how people view fault issues in asbestos cases? • Will the uncertainty and changing nature of information coming from COVID-19 experts have any impact on how ordinary people view the credibility and reliability of expert information? • Will people’s experience with their own mostly unreimbursed losses due to COVID-19 make them more or less sympathetic to plaintiffs in lawsuits? • What impact does the speed of the response to the COVID-19 epidemic have on how people view the speed of the response to diseases due to exposure to asbestos? • Will the fact that the government has been viewed as being mostly responsible for figuring out to deal with the danger of COVID-19 have any impact on how people feel about fault issues in asbestos products cases?

Glyphosate Litigation – two years later where things stand now Ever since the IARC published its report in 2015 finding that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Round- up and other herbicides, was a \"probable carcinogen,\" there has been a growing wave of product liability lawsuits filed in federal and state courts primarily against manufacturer Monsanto, whereby plaintiffs claim that glyphosate caused his or her non-Hodgkin lymphoma or other form of cancer. Cases now top 49,000 Nationwide, and against Monsanto, with new and different cases starting to be brought against distributors, etc. The key “bellweather” trials have now proceeded through post trial motions and rulings and some appeals have moved forward. Additionally, other similar herbicide products (Dichambra, etc.) have also been seeing similar but lesser volume claims in clusters Nationally. As glyphosate is one of the most widely used herbicides from commercial, industrial and household applications, suits targeting food processors and distributors, etc. are anticipated but not yet in suit. However, multiple class action consumer action suits have already been initiated against Quaker Oats and General Mills, etc. claiming that trace amounts of glyphosate have been detected in their products, despite advertising that their products were 100% natural.

He was also the featured speaker for AM Best’s National Podcast on the complex tri-partite relationship that exists between insurers and insureds. PROPOSAL FOR FETTI 2020 CONFERENCE: Current State of Legacy Litigation and Related Insurance Issues So called “legacy” lawsuits are prevalent in oil producing states such as Louisiana and Texas. The lawsuits involve claims by landowners against oil and gas contractors, operators and related entities for damages to their property due to years of exploration activities that allegedly led to pollution and other environmental conditions that must be remediated and/or caused economic damages. Typically, plaintiffs seek damages for tens of millions of dollars for both economic loss and costs to remediate property, which sometimes involves unproven scientific theories. In addition, the allegations of negligence, and sometimes gross negligence, touch companies, and their respective insurers for several years up the chain of ownership. While some of those companies are no longer in business, the insurers are still potentially liable for the loss. This 60-minute presentation will address the elements of a legacy claim, potential areas of damages, available defenses, regulatory concerns and insurance coverage issues that may arise with these lawsuits. The lecture will also include a PowerPoint presentation. A general outline of the presentation is as follows: I. Introduction - Speaker and firm background II. Elements of a Legacy Claim - Negligence - Strict Liability - Gross Negligence - Continuing Nuisance & Trespass - Break of Oil and Gas Leases and/or State Mineral Code III. Elements of Damages - Unjust Enrichment/Civil Fruits - Environmental Assessment - Punitive/Exemplary Damages - Stigma Damages - Injunctive Relief IV.

I was asked about possibilities by my company. Since 2017, I have led teams of industrial hygienists to assess conditions after Hurricanes Irma (Puerto Rico and Florida), Maria (Puerto Rico), Michael (Florida and Alabama), Dorian (Florida), fires (Illinois and Indiana), floods (Louisiana, Omaha) and currently in California during COVID-19 lockdown. I have a CIH, CSP, CMC, PMP and was an officer in the USAF for 8 years. No I have not been a speaker at industry events. However I am a trainer for health, safety and emergency response on such areas as: HAZWOPER, asbestos, silica, fall protection, and various others. I would like to speak on the assessment of hotels, resorts, housing and businesses after a large-scale disaster with a high degree of water intrusion. As an industrial hygienist we are hired by the insurance or insured to assess the damage, determine a protocol cleaning verse removal, and developing a scope of work for the remediation contractors to use. The basic outline of the topic would include: 1) Logistical difficulties post disaster 2) Survey techniques to include asbestos and lead-based paint 3) Writing a scope of work and complying with IICRC guidelines 4) Different classifications of water and how they impact the project 5) Monitoring the project and performing post remediation verifications that could last days to years 6) Unpredicted conditions (mold) and health effects that can arise 7) Closing the projects I am ok being included in a group presenting or by myself.

Conferences venues have included: AIRROC, EECMA, Perrin, and America\'s Claim Event. His 2019 presentation topics were: Environmental Insurance Risks of Climate Change Panel at Perrin\'s Environmental Risk & Litigation Conference on June 18, 2019 in New York City; Oil & Gas Transport panel at Environmental and Emerging Claims Managers Association Conference on May 2, 2019 in Orlando; Environmental Insurance Risks of Natural Catastrophes Panel at Perrin\'s Natural Disaster Conference April 2, 2019 in Miami; and Oil & Gas Transport Panel at Association of Insurance and Reinsurance Run-Off Co’s Conference on March 6, 2019 in New York City. Texas petrochemical engineer Phil Watters of Rimkus and Swiss Re\'s Claims Vice President Mike Diggin propose to discuss the Environmental Risks of transporting Oil & Gas via Pipelines, Storage Facilities, Railways, Motor, and Port Operations at FETTI 2020. In early 2019, we gave a version this talk at AIRROC in NYC and EECMA in Orlando. Our presentation was very well received in both venues. Phil\'s astute oilman observations and tremendous expertise was very well received by the audience. He colorfully explained, in layman\'s terms with shaken up Coke cans, the extreme volatility of some fracked crude oil that significantly increased the Rail transport risk. He also noted that 1940s-50s era pipeline utilized welded steel, which contributes to the risks of aging infrastructure. As well as Cushing Oklahoma\'s 90 million barrels of crude oil storage capacity, and the catastrophic risk presented to the U.S. economy of a massive hydrofracked wastewater disposal-induced earthquake potentially occurring at the \"oil crossroads of America.\" Phil shared his extraordinary insights on the many different types of environmental claims which he has worked on behalf of insurers, including testifying on many of those addressed in the PPT. Mike discussed specific claim examples (e.g., San Bruno & Santa Barbara pipeline explosions, Aliso Canyon gas storage leak, Lac Mégantic train accident, and Tianjin port explosion). Mike noted that a Lesson Learned for the Aliso Canyon gas storage leak was the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on Relocation Costs. Mike reviewed the various types of policies that may respond to Transport losses, parsed policy wording (e.g., Pollution Exclusion with Named Peril and Time Element Exception), noted coverage issues (e.g., where many different entities are involved, whose policy(ies) respond and who is the “insured”?; contractual relationships between the oil & gas well owner/operator and transport firms; distinction between historical pre-existing vs. new contamination; how are facilities ‘locked down’ in advance of a NatCat; and appropriate cleanup standard), and shared Lessons Learned (e.g., Accumulation Risk and Risk Management). Mike noted that insurers increasingly utilize technology (e.g., Rimkus’ drone fleet) to expedite inspections of some losses in locations with limited access. He closed by observing that (re)insurers should be very diligent in their environmental underwriting and utilizing careful standards. As well as assessing their portfolio and severity/accumulation exposure, in addition to updating their price and risk models. Since Oil & Gas transport environmental risks remain still very much timely, we will update our talk with additional material (e.g., mass drone attack on Saudi refinery, PHMSA\'s new 2000-2019 pipeline incident data analytics, 2020 Valdez oil terminal spill and others) at FETTI. If FETTI decides to accept our talk, we envision it could be in a joint Watters/Diggin webinar format, or possibly in a combination Watters live and Diggin webinar format because Swiss Re has not yet telegraphed that travel would be authorized.

Angela Perez CTEH 6035 SW Wilbard Street Portland OR 97219 5419019000 5419019000 aperez@cteh.com Dr. Angie Perez is a Senior Toxicologist with CTEH, a firm specializing in human health risk assessment of environmental, occupational, and consumer product settings. She has over 15 years of experience in the field of toxicology and has over 40 published manuscripts and abstracts on the topics of conducting and managing studies involving historical exposure reconstruction, applied toxicology, chemical exposure assessment, and human health risk assessment. Her research experience includes investigating assessing exposure to- and the potential health effects from metals, asbestos, benzene, phthalates, triclosan, cannabis compounds and associated additives, and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). She is published in the area of decision analysis tools for chemical substitutions in consumer products per the California Safer Consumer Products regulations. Dr. Perez’s primary litigation work is focused on historical and current PFAS contamination of soils and groundwater and health risk assessment of PFAS detected in consumer products. Dr. Perez is also a retained expert in cannabis risk assessment and impairment cases. Yes In 2019, Dr. Perez was invited to present on the topic of PFAS at eight industry and legal conferences including Hunton Andrews Kurth, DRI - Products Litigation, Mitsubishi, Jones Walker, FDCC, Wyoming Defense Counsel, NEWMOA, and AEHS. In addition, the abstract submitted to the Society of Toxicology on the topic of PFAS was accepted for a presentation in April 2020. I propose a panel discussion that includes a myself as a scientific resource, an industry representative who is currently facing liabilities or active litigation related to to PFAS and an attorney who is well-versed in cases involving PFAS. Proposed speakers Industry: I\'d like to invite one of my clients from oil and gas since they face the dual challenge of filing litigation against foam companies while defending their own worker lawsuits resulting from foam exposure. They also face the challenge of vetting new foams for use and the risk of regrettable substitutions. Scientist: Angie Perez, PhD, CTEH Attorney: Ilene Munk, Foley & Mansfield Panel Discussion Overview: PFAS are a large class of synthetic chemicals that are found in nearly every human body on earth and are ubiquitous in the environment. The number of PFAS-related lawsuits is immense and is expanding to now include PFAS substitution chemicals, such as GenX which is used as a replacement for PFOA. This panel discussion will cover the challenges of finding adequate substitutes for PFAS, the strength of the scientific evidence of adverse health or disease endpoints following PFAS exposure, and the targets and scope of current and future PFAS litigation. With respect to the strength of the scientific evidence of adverse health effects or disease endpoints, Dr. Perez may present on the following: Slide 1 Health endpoints evaluated • Cancer (prostate, kidney, testicular, bladder, pancreas, liver) • Immunotoxicity • Neurodevelopmental effects • Metabolic effects My team conducted a study evaluating the potential link between PFOA exposure and lipid profiles, including cholesterol. Our approach was to use the GRADE methodology to conduct a meta-analysis of the available epidemiological literature regarding PFOA exposure and cholesterol modulation. Many international organizations (WHO, IARC, USEPA) have provided input into the development of the GRADE approach which is now considered the standard in assessing epidemiological evidence. Similarly, we evaluated the data by the Bradford Hill Criteria for general causation. When scientists evaluate general causation, it’s often that not every single one of the 9 criteria are met. Thus, a weight of evidence approach is considered. Slide 2 For occupational groups, the median serum or plasma PFOA for the studies with findings and no findings overlap, meaning the serum or plasma concentrations are largely indistinguishable between studies where an effect was observed and studies where there was no effect. These results suggest a lack of a dose-response for PFOA. These findings call into question the strength and consistency of the human association. Among the community studies, there are far more reports of findings in comparison to no findings. We note that, again, the median PFOA serum or plasma concentrations overlap among the studies with findings and no findings. Curiously, the median serum or plasma PFOA concentrations are at least an order of magnitude less than the occupational groups. This may suggest an alternate method of lipid metabolism at low concentrations, or may reflect bias in the study design or other intrinsic bias. As with the results for the occupational studies, the community findings do not reflect a dose response for serum or plasma PFOA and changes in cholesterol. Note: Of the 30 studies, 7 report no findings, 20 report findings, and three do not report either way. Slide 3 The most important conclusions from our study investigating exposure to PFOA and cholesterol modulation are: 1. The strength and consistency of the human association is lacking 2. There is no consistent dose response relationship with PFOA exposure and cholesterol modulation 3. PFOA lacks specificity in being the predominant reason for changes in cholesterol levels. Serum cholesterol can be affected by many factors other than PFAS including Age, gender, and BMI, Studies noted that confounders explained more of the variation in cholesterol in their models than PFAS, What is considered “high” cholesterol varies in humans and has a strong genetic component 4. There is not sufficient evidence to draw conclusions regarding the temporal relationship between PFAS and serum cholesterol or risk of cardiovascular disease because most of the studies are cross-sectional and do not account for changes over time.

Recent insurance case law has upheld the \"Unavailability of Insurance\" rule for cases involving the continuous trigger of occurrence general liability policies for environmental impairment damages. This rule relieves a policyholder of its indemnity and defense contribution for portions of the trigger period when it was uninsured for environmental impairment damages provided they prove that insurance for environmental damages was unavailable. 1986 is the \"magical\" date for policyholders claiming to be uninsured for environmental impairment damages as it is the advent of the Absolute Pollution Exclusion in the ISO Commercial General Liability Policy. Coincidentally, 1986 is the \"birth date\" of the modern Environmental impairment Liability (EIL) insurance underwriting community. This presentation looks at the development of the EIL market and its implication to the application of the Unavailability of Insurance rule. Yes 2020/02/Busting-the-Myth-.pdf Feb-14-2020 11:21:51

As part of this work, Phil has filed amicus briefs on climate change and broader public nuisance lawsuits at nearly every level, from the U.S. Supreme Court to the U.S. Courts of Appeals and state appellate courts. He also has authored numerous legal journal and public policy articles and regularly speaks at judicial and attorney conferences on these issues. Yes I speak regularly on climate change and public nuisance litigation Public Nuisance Theory: Why Every Business Should Be Concerned About This New “Super Tort” Plaintiffs’ lawyers and political activists have been working for nearly 50 years to turn the tort of public nuisance is a “super tort” that can subject businesses to liability, regardless of fault, in their pursuit of environmental, social and political agendas. For years, the courts have wisely rejected these efforts. But, in the past two years rulings in a California lead paint case and an Oklahoma opioids case have breathed new life into this effort. Now, there are public nuisance cases targeting a variety of industries over any number of issues, from the oil and gas industry over climate change to manufacturers of PCB, PFAHs and other chemicals in water-related cases. Our Public Policy Group partner, Phil Goldberg,has developed an hour long CLE for in-house counsel that discusses these trends, explains the history, development and distortion of nuisance theory, and talks about how governments, political activists and plaintiffs’ lawyers are teaming up to bring these cases. For 15 years, Goldberg has been working closely with companies and their trade associations fight back against unwise expansions of public nuisance law, including writing extensively on this topic to educate judges and counsel on the proper bounds of the tort.
