Here’s a challenge: what’s the oldest active litigation pending in the federal district courts? I’m coding dockets (as always) and I came across a monster in the Southern District of Ohio that has been pending since 1991 (it’s a CERCLA case relating to the United Scrap Lead site located in Troy Ohio). The government continues, it seems, to seek pockets to pay cleanup costs, seventeen years into the case.
Can you beat that?
