The Winter 2012 edition of the Wisconsin Civil Trial Journal, published by the Wisconsin Defense Counsel, features an article written by attorney Daniel J. Kennedy that details the history and evolution of Wisconsin’s Pollution Exclusion Jurisprudence. The article provides wide-ranging and valuable insight into the ramifications of the gradually expanding scope of substances and situations to which standard pollution exclusions apply. Kennedy’s analysis examines both historical and contemporary court decisions in order to provide clues to the likely future direction of the courts.
