Andy Lester Explores Oklahoma Supreme Court Ruling in Public Nuisance Case

May 2, 2022

Spencer Fane attorney Andy Lester recently wrote an article for the American Bar Association about an Oklahoma Supreme Court decision and its potential impact on future public nuisance litigation.

Titled “Oklahoma Curbs Public Nuisance Expansion,” Andy describes the Oklahoma Supreme Court’s reversal of a $465 million district court verdict in State ex rel. Hunter v. Johnson & Johnson.

Other Spencer Fane attorneys working on the appeal with Andy were Joe Bednar and A.J. Ferate.
