The Wisconsin AG Sues Johnson Controls and Tyco Fire Products Over PFAS Pollution

Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul filed a lawsuit Monday against Johnson Controls and Tyco Fire Products over PFAS pollution, alleging the companies contaminated the Marinette area over decades and haven’t done enough to clean things up.

Kaul, a Democrat running for reelection in November, filed the action in state court. The lawsuit alleges that Tyco began releasing fire-fighting foam from a Marinette testing facility into the environment in 1962 and the foam has contaminated the area’s soil, groundwater, surface water and air. Johnson Controls has been providing environmental consulting services to Tyco since 2016 but has failed to properly investigate the extent of the pollution and the two companies have done little to clean up the contamination, the lawsuit contends.
