The article did not contain much information. I can't tell if they did anything wrong at all.

I usually don't click on bare links, where the poster does't bother to include part of the article, since it's usually a waste of time.

Agent Orange had a sorry track record from Vietnam usage. The property where Monsanto manufactured it is polluted. I'd say they have culpability.

Funny how you are much harder on govrernment than you are on private industry, even though both can do things you claim to despise.

Funny how your response has nothing to do with responding to my post.

Your post said the article was short on information. It's a news account of a lawsuit by a neutral party, not an indictment.

I pointed out Agent Orange has a long sordid history, and that the grounds are polluted, and I posted the first link.

What are you offering?

Sorry, I expect more when someone posts a new thread.

Doesn't surprise me at all.

I wish the townspeople luck in the lawsuit. It seems it's hard for Monsanto to lose a case. Especially with the revolving door between Monsanto and our government.

The Solutia thing... IMO, no company should have the right to cast off its liabilities while protecting core assets - try that one as a person in bankruptcy court.

In the 1930s, the mill owners in Manchester NH, which had been the largest textile mills in the world, cast their assets into another company and filed bankruptcy for what was left, throwing thousands out of work. Interestingly, what was left, the one with the assets, still exists to this day as a financial investment vehicle for at least one of the owning families.

In the 1990s, a daughter surfaced in the family, the oldest, placed for adoption, same parents. They weren't married when she was born (I used a similar arrangement in my novel, now in third edit.)
