By Patricia Lindauer


The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 allows the EPA to order a party to cleanup hazardous waste before that party is found liable. However, a party can disobey this order when there is sufficient cause. This article discusses the instances where sufficient cause has been found.

The author concludes that sufficient cause may be useful, although it is looked upon with skepticism
