Lawsuit focuses on DuPont’s deliberate poisoning of its employees

A lawsuit in southeast Texas against DuPont is focusing on what DuPont knew and when they knew it with regard to the dangers of asbestos. Company studies showed as early as 1940, with follow-up studies in the 50’s and 60’s, that asbestos was lethal, yet the company continually and deliberately exposed its workers to the lethal fibers.
