Colorado firm sues IBM for alleged site contamination
Colorado company files lawsuit against New York-based computer corporation, claims it dumped toxic waste in landfill decades ago
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado development firm has filed a lawsuit against New York-based IBM Corp. for alleged improper disposal of toxic waste in a landfill decades ago.
The Daily Camera reported Monday that Golden-based Stratus Redtail Ranch, LLC filed the complaint against IBM and WWD, LLC, over the waste disposal at what is now a housing development site in Erie west of Denver.
The lawsuit contends that WWD, LLC, was aware of hazardous material at the property before Stratus purchased the site in 2015. It claims Stratus has spent more than $4 million for cleanup.
The lawsuit says the property was used as a landfill between 1965 and 1969 by IBM to dump waste from its Boulder plant where it made computers, magnetic tapes and reproduction and photocopying equipment.
IBM spokesman Doug Shelton denied wrongdoing by the company.
An attorney for WWD, LCC, did not immediately return a call for comment.
