Sunshine Canyon Class Action

Arias Sanguinetti Stahle & Torrijos is pursuing a class action against Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc. arising from the company’s Sunshine Canyon Landfill.  The landfill is placed in the middle of a canyon, thus creating a situation where odors that are not properly controlled are carried into the neighborhoods nearby, including the Granada Hills area. The foul odor harms the residents on a regular basis, as the landfill has continually failed to abate its odorous emissions. Plaintiffs, among other things, are seeking compensation for the decrease of value of their real estate property.
