Criminal trial of W.R. Grace executives

The charges are based on the executives' failure to take stronger steps to protect the population of Libby, Montana, from the dispersal of mined vermiculite naturally containing asbestos. It is being widely watched as a test case in the application of criminal law to environmental and product-related injury; the New York Times account quotes lawprof and friend of this site Lester Brickman.
