NJ Supreme Court Rejects Public Nuisance Lead Paint Suit

On Friday, the New Jersey Supreme Court rejected a public nuisance claim against manufacturers of lead paint:  In re Lead Paint Litig.  The court found that the claim, at its core, was a products liability claim, stating: "We cannot help but agree with the observation that,were we to find a cause of action here, "nuisance law" would become a monster that would devour in one gulp the entire law of tort." (Op. at 50).
