Black Miami neighborhood files class-action lawsuit over toxic incinerator waste


MiamiHerald / Residents of a predominately black neighborhood have joined together to file a class-action lawsuit against the city of Miami, saying government officials forced them to live for decades amid a toxic ash plume and then kept quiet after learning of widespread contamination.

More than 100 people in the West Grove say a city trash incinerator that burned rubbish and towered over their segregated community for nearly 50 years caused or contributed to their cancer, diabetes, leukemia, seizures, asthma and liver disease. The facility was shuttered by the courts in 1970, but contaminants left in the ground and discovered by the government at least six years ago are also blamed for health problems and depressed property values.

Even today, the city has yet to fully acknowledge or correct the problem, says Louise Caro, the Napoli Shkolnik attorney handling the case.

"We’re talking about generations here. If the stuff wasn’t still in the ground, there would be fewer people affected," she told the Miami Herald. "We think it’s at least 14,000 people. It could be more."
