Event description

Description

Stop EtO in Lake County has invited several law firms with extensive experience in litigation against Sterigenics in Willowbrook and other environmental law firms to participate in a panel discussion.

The community will also hear from Stop EtO’s legal representatives regarding their opinion on Home Rule Authority that municipalities may exercise on facilities operating within their jurisdiction.

The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity for the community to:

1. Ask legal questions related to exposure to Ethylene Oxide (EtO). EtO exposure is linked to an increased risk of cancer, including leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and breast cancer. Many residents in our community are suffering from cancer, and many others have died from cancer.

2. Learn your options from legal experts.

Stop EtO does not have a formal relationship with any participating law firm, and we will not financially or materially benefit from the forum. We are formally represented by Northwestern University Bluhm Legal Advocacy Clinic, and do not have a formal relationship with any other legal entity. We have organized this event as a courtesy to members of the community, all of whom are victims of this pollution and deserve answers to any questions they may have.
