Summary:
In 1982, a case was filed in Massachusetts district court which would become one of the most complicated and controversial in American legal history. But the story begins 10 years earlier, with the death of Jimmy Anderson from leukemia.When Jimmy's mother discovered that several other children in her neighborhood suffered from the same disease, she came to believe the area's notoriously foul drinking water was to blame. After years of false starts, a 1979 finding that local wells were contaminated by toxic solvents opened the door for legal action.
AMERICAN JUSTICE reveals how families that had lost children joined together in a law suit against two Fortune 500 companies believed to be the source of the contamination. Helping document the bitter, controversial and long battle are attorneys from both sides, bereaved parents and, speaking for the first time about the trial, Judge Walter Skinner. This is the authoritative investigation of the true story behind the book and movie A Civil Action.
