The C8 Health Project has been executed in accordance with the terms of the above cited settlement, and supervised by Judge Hill, Jr. To ensure objectivity, the court created and appointed an independent company, Brookmar Inc., to administer the project in the agreed-upon manner. A private company wholly owned by Dr. A. Paul Brooks, Jr., a retired Parkersburg-area physician and hospital administrator, and Mr. Arthur A. Maher, a retired Parkersburg area hospital administrator, Brookmar Inc. was created solely to execute the C8 Health Project, and was charged with coordinating the collection of and assembling data from the Class so that an independent panel of scientists and epidemiologists could investigate the potential links between C8 and human disease in the Class.
