May 12, 2014 – SAN FRANCISCO, CA– The Evans Law Firm, Inc. filed a complaint for public nuisance, along with co- counsel Macuga, Liddle and Dubin, Sheets, Laura L., and Coulson, Nicholas A., alleging that Darling International, Inc. (“Darling”) releases noxious odors, pollutants, and air contaminants throughout the residences of Southwest Fresno. The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District has also cited Darling at least once for having emitted odors after having received numerous complaints from residents in the last several years. Plaintiffs allege invasion of their property by harmful pollutants, odors, and air pollutants that have caused them to suffer injuries including, but not limited to, exposure of pollutants, horrific odors, and air contaminants as a result of Darling’s public nuisance and gross negligence.
Darling is a rendering plant (processing of animal products into more other materials) that processes large amounts of meat daily and is located in Southwest Fresno, only three miles from a local high school and other residences. According to the complaint, Darling’s company practices are producing overpowering smells that are aggravating the Fresno residents. Others claim that this disrupts outdoor activities, as well as distracts their children’s learning at school. As a direct result of Darling’s negligence and gross negligence in maintaining and/or operating their rendering plant, the Plaintiffs’ use and enjoyment of their property has been affected.
