Erin Brockovich

DORIS: How dare you sneak out like that, you sniveling little pond scum sample! I should call Erin Brockovich to bring a lawsuit against your parents, you steaming lump of toxic waste!

Erin Brockovich (born Erin Pattee in 1960), legal clerk, consumer advocate, and environmental activist who, despite her lack of education in the law, was instrumental in building a case against Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) involving groundwater contamination in a town in California with the help of attorney Ed Masry in 1993.

Their successful lawsuit was the subject of the Oscar-winning 2000 film, Erin Brockovich, starring Julia Robert and Albert Finney. Since then, Brockovich has become a media personality and legal consultant.
