Todd Hageman of The Simon Law Firm, P.C. along with Zak Johnson of Zakariah Johnson, PLLC and Tom Theado of Gary, Naegele and Theado, prevailed in a seven day trial as to liability on behalf of 121 residents against the owner and operator of the Tunnell Hill Landfill. The jury rendered its verdict on July 28, 2015 that the landfill was operated in a negligent manner. The landfill is located in Perry County, Ohio, and the trial venue was changed to nearby Licking County. Residents had been complaining about noxious hydrogen sulfide odors keeping them from enjoying their property since 2011, and are still complaining today. An additional trial will be set to determine how the residents will be compensated for the loss of use and enjoyment of their properties.
