The Port of Redwood City v. Gibson Envtl. Inc., ___F.3d___
The Ninth Circuit affirmed the District Court’s judgment against the Port of Redwood City’s state law claim for negligence per se holding that the jury reasonably could find that Shell Oil Company’s shipments did not cause the port’s injury. The Ninth Circuit also upheld the District Court’s grant of summary judgment for Shell on the port’s federal claim under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA).
