Judge approves Spelter smelter settlement

Harrison County Circuit Judge Thomas A. Bedell today issued an order approving the settlement of the class-action lawsuit over pollution from a former DuPont Co. smelter in Spelter, W.Va.

I’ve posted a copy of the judge’s order here.

The judge did not yet approve the request for attorneys’ fees and costs or resolve a dispute between DuPont and the residents’ lawyers concerning administration of a medical monitoring program.
