NEW JERSEY LAWYER

Shell Oil Co. will pay $600,000 to a South Brunswick family to settle allegations that gasoline leaks from a service station contaminated their potable well water with MTBE. The settlement was reached during private mediation at the suggestion of U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo in Newark. The case, Eckert v. Motiva, was filed in Middlesex County Superior Court and removed to U.S. District Court in 2002. Princeton attorney Shari M. Blecher represented the plaintiffs; Jeffrey W. Moryan and David J. Mairo of Roseland were the defendants’ attorneys. 2-20-04
