Two-dozen wrongful death suits against Bristol-Myers Squibb Company were recently revived after a New Jersey federal judge ruled that a more lenient federal statute of limitations law should be applied to the cases. The plaintiffs filed a lawsuit against the pharmaceutical giant, alleging the company failed to warn its neighbors about contaminated air and soil. However, the cases were dismissed in February  2013 after U.S. District Judge Freda L. Wolfson said the state law applied and under New Jersey's Wrongful Death Act the lawsuits must be filed within two years after the death occurs. In September, 2013, U.S. Magistrate Judge Douglas E. Alpert ruled that federal law preempts a state law and the lawsuits have been reinstated. The lawsuits are filed in the in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey under Dyshelle Harris v. Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. et al., case number 3:11-cv-06004.
