Who are the plaintiffs in Dead Creek case?

I would like for the lawyer who filed the lawsuit against Cerro Flow Products to come to my address next to Dead Creek, on Kinder Street. There are not 90 residences along Dead Creek between Queeny Avenue in Sauget and Camp Jackson Road and Illinois 3 (Mississippi Avenue).

Most of my older friends told me that as children they swam in Dead Creek. So a lawyer is just trying to file a frivolous "make myself a name" lawsuit and make himself rich on ghosts who no longer exist.

Dead Creek was part of the Superfund cleanup that is controlled by the U.S. EPA.

The Belleville News-Democrat has my address on Kinder Street along with my cell phone number.
