Flushable Wipes

City of Wyoming, et al. v. Procter & Gamble Company, et al., No. 15-cv-02101-JRT-TNL (D. Minn.)

The firm serves as counsel to plaintiffs in an action on behalf of entities that own, manage or operate wastewater treatment systems. Plaintiffs are suing the leading manufacturers of wipes marketed as “flushable,” on grounds that these wipes are not in fact “flushable” as they do not pass through the wastewater treatment system with adequate degradation, causing damage to the facilities.
