Bell Legal Group Initiates Initial Lawsuits on Behalf of Camp Lejeune Victims Against U.S. Government for Exposure to Toxic Water on Military Base

J. Edward Bell III, the founder and senior partner of Bell Legal Group and also the president of Charleston School of Law, played a personal role in championing the passage of the Camp Lejeune Justice Act. Over the span of more than a decade, Bell collaborated with Camp Lejeune victims, including Master Sergeant J.M. Ensminger, USMC, Ret., a prominent advocate for the cause, and Michael Partain, co-founder of the Few, the Proud, the Forgotten, along with elected officials. This collective effort culminated in the enactment of this legislation, marking the first opportunity for victims to seek justice regarding their unlawful exposure to contaminated water while stationed at the military base.
