R.I./duPont lead pact, cont'd

More on the controversy covered here and here, about the terms reached by duPont in its pact with Rhode Island attorney general Patrick Lynch and many-tentacled law firm Motley Rice. Were earmarks of $2.5 million to a Boston hospital and $1 million to Brown University designed to advance the private interests of the law firm and the AG, respectively? Sherwin-Williams, which cut no deal with the state and remains a defendant, has now asked a judge to undo the two donations. LegalNewsLine and Jane Genova cover the story. (More: Hans Bader).

In other news of lead paint litigation, the Thomas case in Milwaukee has now gone to the jury. Update: defense verdict.
