Madison—In a hearing today, a Waukesha County Circuit Court judge granted a motion by environmental and public health groups to file an amicus, or ‘friend of the court’, brief in a lawsuit brought by Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce against the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Although they will not participate as full parties, the groups will be allowed to submit arguments for the judge’s consideration in a case they say threatens to fundamentally undermine the Spills Law—a bedrock environmental and public health protection that keeps Wisconsinites safe from exposure to PFAS and other hazardous substances.
