Erin Brockovich to come to Roane County

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Environmental law consultant Erin Brockovich expects a class-action lawsuit will come out of the TVA sludge slide in Roane County.

Ms. Brockovich says she plans to visit Roane County next week to talk with residents worried about the fallout.

Attorneys from a New York Law firm will accompany her.

An exact date, time and place haven't been set.

Back in the '90s a class action law suit Brockovich was involved in led to a $333 million settlement and inspired the academy award-winning movie "Erin Brockovich," starring Julia Roberts.
