Chlorine Leak Settlement Reached

April 14, 2008 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 86, ISSUE 15

Railroad operator Norfolk Southern has agreed to a confidential settlement of a lawsuit brought by Avondale Mills. The textile firm shut its operations in July 2006, blaming its failure on a January 2005 Norfolk Southern train derailment and chlorine spill that wrecked its denim plant in Graniteville, S.C.

Norfolk Southern previously settled class-action suits brought by Graniteville residents covering personal injuries and property damage.
