ESSAY ADMINISTRATION OF THE 2003 TOLBERT PC B SETTLEMENT IN ANNISTON, ALABAMA: AN ATTEMPTED COLLABORATIVE AND HOLISTIC REMEDY Edgar C. Gentle, Ilf ABSTRACT The author was the court-appointed administrator of a $300 million dollar settlement between 18,000 claimants and Solutia, Inc., Monsanto Company, and Pharmacia Corporation (Tolbert Defendants), ' respecting polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in Anniston, Alabama. In addition to paying for claimed personal injury and property damages, the settlement paid for a medical clinic, and sponsored scientiflc research and community reconciliation that have begun to provide a holistic remedy. Impediments to case administration were disparate payments to claimants in other set- tlements, liens on 30% of claimants, and claimant poverty. A collaborative model was used to design the settlement, to help ensure fairness, and to avoid a Rube Goldberg settlement matrix. Settlement design and distribu- tion documents are found at ABSTRACT 1249 INTRODUCTION 1250 I. THE SETTLEMENT CLIMATE OF CONTROVERSY 1251 * Bom February 17, 1953, in Birmingham, Alabama.
