Lore v. Lone Pine Corporation

Superior Court of New Jersey
No. L-33606-85 (N.J. Super. Ct. Law Div. 1986)


Facts

Joseph Lore and others (plaintiffs) owned property near the Lone Pine Landfill. The plaintiffs brought suit in tort against Lone Pine Corporation (Lone Pine) and 463 others (defendants), alleging personal injuries and depreciated property values resulting from Lone Pine’s operation of the landfill and the other defendants’ production and transportation of toxic materials. The plaintiffs complained of injuries such as allergies and skin rashes. However, the plaintiffs failed to produce medical records or a doctor’s report indicating any kind of causal connection between the injuries and the defendants. To support their claims of diminished property values, the plaintiffs produced a realtor’s report, in which a realtor stated that the property values had decreased. However, the report indicated that the realtor had not inspected the properties and had not compared the properties to other, similar properties. The defendants requested an order to show cause. The plaintiffs were ordered to substantiate their claims further, and were granted a requested extension to do so.
