In 1966, Daniel Heller owned a butcher shop. He expanded to a shopping center and rented out a store to a drycleaner. He sold the shopping center in 1984 for $285,000.
Today he's 88 and ill, and the Department of Environmental Protection is suing him because it turns out the drycleaner was polluting the groundwater.
DEP is trying to force the Hellers to pay $300,000 for their share of the cleanup. No word if the state has tried suing the drycleaners themselves for the money.
