Notice is hereby given that on August 17, 2012, a proposed consent decree in U.S. v. Estate of Lillian Wiesner, et al., No. CV-05-1634, was lodged with the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

In this action the United States seeks recovery, pursuant to the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (“CERCLA”), 42 U.S.C. 9601 et seq., of response costs regarding the Stanton Cleaners Area Groundwater Superfund Site in the Town of Great Neck, N.Y. (“Site”). The settlement provides for the defendants Weisner Estate and John P. Maffei to cause to be paid to the United States a total of $756,000. The settlement also provides for defendant Weisner Estate to sell the property upon which the Site is located and to pay the United States 92% of the proceeds of such sale, which payment is expected to total approximately $2.024 million. The settlement resolves the United States' claims against the defendants regarding the Site.
