A town left to die (W.R. Grace Co.)

Postby Webmaster » February 25th, 2005, 9:14 am

People in Libby were dying yet the W.R. Grace Co. didn't stop it. Reports detailing the poisoning were kept from the public and the Industrial Accident Board. Other government regulators assisted in making the evidence "confidential." In internal memos, Grace lawyers say confidentiality protects them from having reports used against them in workers' comp cases. Maryland Casualty of Portland, Or. urged Grace lawyers to prevent the entry of the "confidential" state inspection reports into evidence in a workers' compensation case.
