About Mark R. Cuker

Mark Cuker is one of the foremost environmental litigation attorneys in the country. Some of his high-profile toxic tort cases – most notably the Toms River case have been profiled in books, television news programs and on the internet.

Toms River involved children who were developing cancer at an alarming rate — so high that the New Jersey town was designated a “cancer cluster.” The community demanded answers, and, shepherded by Mark Cuker and his team, they discovered that the town’s drinking water had been polluted by chemicals like styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) trimer and by-products of dye manufacturing for decades.

The court refused to rehear an earlier ruling by a three judge panel which ruled that claims for blood testing should be allowed to proceed and are not barred by governmental immunity. Mark Cuker, the attorney representing the family seeking the blood testing, is looking forward to proving these ...
