3M Pollution Suit Starting Today

May 4th, 2009 Comments off

A local environmental battle is reaching a climax as a suit against 3M for water contamination in Washington County gets underway.  Both local dailies have pieces about it today and I suspect they will provide continuing coverage for the next several weeks as this case plays out.  Once again, my impression isn’t necessarily that the most damaging/important thing is even that 3M is found guilty, but that the fact that this case is already raining down bad publicity on them whether or not they prevail.
