Akron withdraws lead paint lawsuit



The city of Akron, apparently having had second thoughts about signing up for Motley Rice's big money quest, has withdrawn its lawsuit seeking damages from former manufacturers of lead paints, though it says it hasn't ruled out refiling. MedPundit Sydney Smith, who's from the Akron area herself, discusses, as does Boring Made Dull ("Surprisingly, Akron Decides That it's a Bad Idea to Bankrupt a Major Local Employer" -- also see this earlier post.) And Jane Genova has been on the story here, here, here, here, here, and here. An editorial in the Akron Beacon Journal commended the city administration for taking "the responsible course" in reconsidering the suit.
