Maxxam/PL faces new lawsuitsSan Francisco Bay Area 08 Nov 2004 01:40 GMT
Maxxam/Pacific Lumber found itself facing two new lawsuits this week, one in Federal court and one in California Superior Court. The Environmental Protection Information Center (EPIC) filed the suits against PL and government agencies entrusted to uphold environmental laws, but who all too often fail to keep Pacific Lumber in compliance with these regulations. The Federal suit, which names U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and NOAA Fisheries as well as Pacific Lumber was filed by award winning EPIC attorney Sharon Duggan, who fought and won a four year long case challenging PL's "fatally flawed" Sustained Yield Plan.
