Mr. Miller was retained as an expert witness, produced a detailed Expert Report. and was deposed by defendant’s attorneys and experts. The case was settled out of court, in part due to Mr. Miller’s expert report and analysis results forcing the mining companies to settle the case rather than go to trial. Mr. Miller and ZMassociates provided expert forensic chemical research, analysis, dispersion modeling and human health risk analysis supporting plaintiff exposure and medical injury claims of injury due to exposures of toxic metals emitted, transported, and leached from the Blackbird Cobalt mine operations, in Salmon, Idaho. Mr. Miller’s work was backed with good science, good data, and utilization of state of the art forensic analysis and contaminant modeling protocols.
