What is the Camp Lejeune Justice Act?
On August 10, 2022, the President signed into law the Camp Lejeune Justice Act of 2022. From 1953 to 1987, the water at Camp Lejeune was highly toxic and caused exposed people to suffer serious medical injuries, such as cancer and other diseases and miscarriages. Under the new law, anyone who was on Camp Lejeune between 1953 and 1987 for 30 days total and who has suffered medical injury may have grounds for recovery. Injured people and their families will have two years to file claims seeking reparation for their injuries as a result of their exposure to toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune. Any court cases must be filed in the federal court in Eastern District of North Carolina.
