ST. LOUIS - St. Louis residents seeking to represent a class of property owners for alleged chlorinated solvent soil and groundwater contamination and vapor intrusion of residences sufficiently pleaded claims sounding in tort to survive a defense motion to dismiss, the presiding magistrate judge concluded in an order entered May 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri (Mikerlange Altidor v. Missouri Metals, et al., No. 12-1997, E.D. Mo.; 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74466).
