First Responders to Paulsboro Derailment Get Suits Remanded to NJ Court
On January 13, 2014, U.S. District Judge Robert Kugler granted a motion to remand the claims of approximately 30 plaintiffs to the Gloucester County Superior Court. In September 2013, the case Belbin v. Consolidated Rail Corp. had been removed to federal court based on diversity jurisdiction; one of the plaintiffs was from Pennsylvania. However, plaintiffs moved for remand since the plaintiff from Pennsylvania shared citizenship with Philadelphia-based Conrail.
The Toxic Injury Lawyers represent over 100 plaintiffs in a separate suit pertaining to the November 2012 train derailment in Paulsboro.
