The lawyer for residents of the Geneva Foundry neighborhoods has filed an amended notice of claim against the state, city and county over soil contamination from the closed foundry operation. The initial notice of claim was filed in January by attorney Steve Williams of Syracuse.
A notice of claim is not a formal lawsuit, but reserves the claimants right to sue if a settlement is not reached. A formal lawsuit would be in a summons and complaint.
The initial notice of claim listed the names of Emily Laughlin and her four children, all younger than 18, who lived at four homes for many years, all within a few blocks of the former foundry site at 23 Jackson St.
