Marylands attorney general filed a lawsuit Tuesday against chemical company Monsanto and two spinoffs, alleging that chemicals Monsanto manufactured harmed the states waters, fish and wildlife and seeking to recover damages and clean-up costs.
The lawsuit filed in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City alleges that Monsanto knew as early as 1937 that polychlorinated biphenyls had systemic toxic effects in humans and animals, Attorney General Brian Frosh said in a news release.
Monsanto not only continued to manufacture and sell PCBs but increased production even when the harm to the environment was undeniable, Frosh said in a statement. Monsantos toxic legacy lives on. Until today, Marylanders have borne the cost of cleaning up these poisons. It is time for Monsanto to take full responsibility.
Monsanto was the only U.S. company to manufacture PCBs for widespread commercial use between 1935 and 1977, when it ceased production two years before it was banned. The company knew PCBs dont naturally break down and touted their longevity, the suit alleges.

Obviously there are going to be a lot of green bean and mushroom soup casseroles lurking on tables on Thanksgiving. The horror!

A person of interest in the SUV attack that killed at least five and injured dozens more at a quaint holiday parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday has been identified as a 39-year-old who recently posted bail on reckless-endangerment charges.
Darrell Brooks was taken into custody as a person of interest and was being questioned in connection with the Sunday evening incident involving a red Ford Escape that plowed through barricades and into the crowd, sparking panic and unleashing mass bloodshed, NBC News first reported. The sprawling disaster left members of the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies among the dead, and at least a dozen children and a priest among the injured.
NBC News cited five law-enforcement officials who also noted investigators were looking into the possibility the Milwaukee resident had been fleeing an earlier incident involving a knife fight at the time of the Sunday parade. Brooks has not been charged with a crime nor named an official suspect in the Sunday incident, but the Associated Press also reported Brooks was a person of interest, citing two officials.
Public records show Brooks has a significant criminal history in Wisconsin that spans over two decades. This past Friday, he posted a cash bond in connection with charges including resisting or obstructing an officer, bail jumping, recklessly endangering safety with domestic-abuse assessments, disorderly conduct with a domestic-abuse assessment, and battery.
