After Passage of Landmark Bill, Personal Injury Attorney David Russotto Urges Victims of Camp Lejeune Contaminated Water to Step Forward
Veterans benefits lawyer David Russotto of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban announces his support of President Obama’s recent signing of the Janey Ensminger Act (H.R. 1742).
Mr. Russotto, a veteran of The Gulf War era and former Navy JAG Corp attorney, has been following this bill with interest. The Janey Ensminger Act provides disability compensation to thousands of sick Marine veterans and their families who were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune. Janey Ensminger’s father, Jerry Ensminger, has been working to call attention to the contaminated water for decades, after the death of his daughter from leukemia at the age of nine. Hundreds of thousands were exposed to this contaminated water, poisoned by chemicals such as trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, benzene and vinyl chloride.
