Although not technically a lawyer, but a legal clerk and environmental activist, here the real life Erin Brockovich (who was portrayed by the actress Julia Roberts in the eponymous film released in 2000) discusses the class action lawsuit against Pacific Gas & Electric in which she played an integral role. The direct action lawsuit was brought by residents of Hinkley who had suffered illness that they believed was due to water contamination caused by the PG& E‘s use of hexavalent chromium to prevent corrosion of a nearby Compressor Station. Here she describes her work with the Hinkley, CA residents who became plaintiffs in the case who were hesitant to take on the California energy company. The case settled in 1996 for over 300 million dollars and was the largest sum ever awarded in a direct action lawsuit.
In the years since the case in Hinkley Brockovich has continued her work in environmental litigation acting as a consultant to asbestos attorneys in toxic tort cases and has worked on other water contamination claims in California and in other states such as Texas.
