New Jersey’s Supreme Court has ruled the state isn’t liable for part of an $80 million toxic waste cleanup along the Raritan Bay.

A company designated in 2013 by the federal Environmental Protection Agency for the cleanup claimed the state knew contaminated soil was used to build a seawall in the Laurence Harbor section of Old Bridge Township, in the early 1970s.
The court held Monday the state isn’t liable retroactively under a law passed after the contamination occurred.
