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 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 ...
  • A ‘forever chemical’ poisons drinking water near military bases
    Congress fails to act; Community fights on Congress passed the National Defense Authorization Act, which, to our bitter disappointment, leaves PFAS “unregulated.” It includes some measures to reduce future PFAS use, but this is nowhere near enough to address the problem. This excellent NBC news story describes how Hope Grosse and Joanne Stanton, founders of Buxmont Coalition for Safer Water, have been affected by the pollution and how they remain undaunted in their determination to fight for ...
  • Getting justice for PFAS victims is a steep uphill battle
    Getting justice for PFAS victims is a steep uphill battle.  The chemicals were entirely unregulated as recently as five years ago; and still unregulated in most states. Polluters have an array of defenses, ranging from sovereign immunity for the U.S. Government, to the government contractor defense for the foam manufacturers. But when I saw the drinking water of 80,000 people in my community (including me) polluted with PFAS, I was not going to take it lying down. So I did something no other ...
