CRC on Environmental Working Group



Writing for Organization Trends, published by the invaluable Capital Research Center, Martin Morse Wooster investigates in some detail (PDF) the trial lawyer connections of the Environmental Working Group, whose doings have aroused our curiosity on several occasions (here, here, here and here, for example). Wooster explores EWG's role in working with plaintiff's lawyers and the media to advance lawsuits against Monsanto/Solutia in Alabama and DuPont in its West Virginia Teflon operations, as well as in controversies that include arsenic, asbestos and even SUV rollovers (the latter being not particularly "environmental", but still of interest to EWG's constituency).
