Pro Se Plaintiff Files Appeal of Decision Terminating Camp Lejeune MDL Docket

  • Docketing Statement

ATLANTA –– A pro se plaintiff that had claims pending in the recently dismissed Camp Lejeune water contamination docket has filed a notice of appeal, saying that all cases that alleged deception should be able to ask for equitable tolling.

In his docket statement for appeal filed Dec. 16 with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, the plaintiffs said that “equitable tolling should always apply when such solemn promises to protect the Marines’ children and spouses were made and broken.”

“Equitable tolling in such case is not discretionary, but mandatory,” plaintiff Andrew U.D. Straw asserted.
