Union Carbide Corporation (DOW) Not Liable for Environmental Remediation or Pollution-Related Claims

June 27, 2012 12:26 PM EDT
A federal court in New York unambiguously concluded that Union Carbide Corporation (UCC) is not liable for any environmental remediation or pollution-related claims made by residents near the Bhopal plant site in India, which was formerly owned and operated by Union Carbide India Limited (an entity once owned by UCC).

After many years of pending litigation and exhaustive discovery, United States District Court Judge John F. Keenan issued a comprehensive decision rejecting all of the class action Indian plaintiffs’ arguments seeking to extend liability to UCC and, instead, dismissed all claims against UCC and its former Chairman Warren Anderson.

Union Carbide Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW).

These guys did a great thing ... it will probably make you laugh but it will also make you think. In the end I think they are much smarter and wise than NY federal court.
