We are currently working with The Belt Law Firm on a class action lawsuit against Renewable Environmental Solutions (RES), a rendering plant located in Carthage, Missouri, which began operations in 2002. Our firm is representing Carthage area residents who have experienced noxious odors emanating from the RES facility. Specifically, the RES facility converts turkey waste generated by a nearby turkey processing plant into reusable oil. The suit alleges that the processes used by RES release putrid odors into the community on a regular basis. In fact, the odors can reach such a degree that Carthage residents are forced to shut their windows and remain inside to obtain relief. Although creating renewable fuel sources is an admirable endeavor, we believe it should not be done at the expense of surrounding community members’ right to use and enjoy their property.
RES’ odor releases have resulted in the diminution in value of the class members’ properties. Additionally, the class members have lost the ability to use and enjoy their property as they see fit. Our goal in this lawsuit is to terminate the continuing nuisance caused by RES’ odor and obtain compensation to recover the diminished value of the class members’ property. Within the next nine months, the Circuit Court of Jasper County will determine whether the case can proceed as a class action. Rhon Jones and Mary Pat Crook are handling these claims for the firm.
