Dallas Mesothelioma Cancer New Report – The company cites lack of proof and government misconduct in plea for acquittal.
W.R. Grace and Co. asked for an acquittal in their environmental crime case Friday. As reported by Bloomberg, the company and five individuals who had been executives of W.R. Grace and Co. requested they be acquitted on the grounds of government misconduct and a lack of proof provided by the prosecution.
As noted in the report, U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy has been critical of the government’s case. He is quoted by Bloomberg as having stated to prosecutors at an earlier date, “Where is the conspiracy? Six weeks we’ve been at this and I don’t know what the conspiracy is.”
W.R. Grace has been accused of conspiracy, fraud, obstructing justice, and violating the Clean Air Act stemming from claims that they exposed Libby, Montana residents to dangerous asbestos.
Asbestos exposure can lead to mesothelioma lung cancer and other serious diseases.
