Finally, Justice for Veterans with Camp Lejeune Justice Act

By Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo Plotkin & Hellman LLP

We are pleased to announce the passing of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act which we expect will

be signed by President Biden tomorrow. This is a unique legislation opening the North

Carolina federal court to veterans, their families, and base workers who were exposed to base

drinking water between 1953 and 1987. All potential governmental defenses are eliminated, and

the statute of limitations and repose will be waived. We are co-counseling with a firm in Onslow

County with an office several miles from the base. The Act does not currently contain a settlement

plan, “qualifying” injuries, or settlement fund. However, this will evolve in the future. We are

investigating cases where there was at least 30-day exposure and one of these or similar


  • Adult leukemia
  • Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Bladder cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Female infertility
  • Hepatic steatosis
  • Kidney cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Lung cancer
  • Miscarriage
  • Multiple myeloma
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes
  • Neurobehavioral effects
  • Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma
  • Renal toxicity
  • Scleroderma

Our firm has the knowledge and experience to handle these cases.  We are proud and privileged to represent members of our armed forces and their families in their quest for justice.
