Today, the Supreme Court overrode the Court of Appeal’s verdict and ruled in favour of the residents affected by PFAS-contaminated drinking water in the Swedish towns of Kallinge and Ronneby. The ruling means that the 150 affected individuals are now entitled to compensation.

“The residents have, through drinking water, been exposed to high levels of PFAS in the blood, leading to an increased risk of certain negative health effects and diseases”, says Supreme Court judge Jonas Malmberg in a statement.
