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.

  • PFAS endangers pregnancies, newborns
    There’s no force in nature more powerful than a mothers love for her child. Yet there is new evidence that PFAS threatens that sacred relationship We have known for a long time that PFAS builds up in the body and blood. So even if a mother is not currently exposed to PFAS, the buildup from past exposure can cause a mother to pass the PFAS in her body to her child in her mother’s milk. Recent research shows that high maternal PFAS levels are associated with low birth weight, which can mean ...
  • PFAS Panel Discussion – Delaware University
    On Tuesday Feb 12 I participated in a panel discussion on the PFAS crisis at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown , superbly moderated by Senator Maria Collett. Despite the overwhelming need to regulate these chemicals, list them as hazardous substances and establish an enforceable safe drinking water limit, both EPA and the PA DEP have failed to act. As one astute audience member observed, this failure imposes “unfunded mandates” on polluted communities, because it keeps polluters from ...
  • The EPAs Latest Effort to Endanger Drinking Water
    I cannot adequately express my disgust and revulsion at EPA’s latest effort to endanger our drinking water. The proposed Waters of the United States Rule would have prevented contamination of groundwater as well as surface water from chemical and environmental contamination, because the two are so connected; groundwater often flows into surface water and vice versa. And 51% of us get our drinking water from groundwater. But EPA is rejecting the rule, CONTRARY to the recommendation of its own ...
  • Courtroom Loss Should Serve as Call to Action: Designate PFAS as hazardous!
    Last week, Judge Pappert dismissed the PFAS exposure medical monitoring suit we filed against the US Navy because, even though these chemicals are “hazardous” under any definition, neither the EPA nor the PaDEP had “designated” PFOA or PFOS as “hazardous substances” under Pennsylvania’s Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act. The judge ruled that meeting the “definition” wasn’t good enough; we need a “designation”. It might be tempting to complain about the legal technicality which distinguishes ...
