Woburn Redux?

This article regarding the indictment of W.R. Grace in Montana happened to catch my eye as I just finished writing a response to A Civil Action by Jonathon Harr for my CivPro class. My professor made it required reading for the semester and I am glad that he did. It was nice to spend a little time away from the casebooks reading a novel and still feel like I was learning and being productive. However, in the end, I was left wanting to know what really happened in Woburn. For an interesting follow-up check out the following site sponsored by W.R. Grace.

Hopefully the people of Libby, MT have had the opportunity to read Mr. Harrís book since it provides at least a glimpse of what lies ahead. Even though this indictment is not a civil case, I would imagine that the people of Libby are just as invested in the outcome as the people of Woburn were two decades ago.

The indictment lays out a host of counts including the to-be-expected USEPA violations and a less obvious count of wire fraud. It also includes data regarding cancer levels in Libby that appears intriguing. This case should be one to watch.

In the end, didnít a crafty U.S. government take down Al Capone for tax evasion?
