No Health Effects, but Punitives Possible Against 3M on Trespass and Negligence

The Star Tribune has details on the trial court ruling relating to PFCs in the groundwater in Washington County, Minnesota.  Essentially, the plaintiffs can't go forward with claims that the PFCs harmed their health, but can proceed on a trespass claim and a (slightly vague from the story) negligence claim, and have the potential to obtain punitive damages on those claims.
