Court lets Exide abandon toxic site, leave cleanup bill for taxpayers

Exide Technologies has been allowed to abandon its former battery recycling plant in Vernon, California, leaving the state and taxpayers with a hefty bill to pay for the environmental cleanup of the site. The decision came as a part of a bankruptcy settlement that the U.S. Department of Justice agreed to will allow the company to abandon several toxic sites around the country.

The state knew what Exide was doing for over 30 years and did nothing but take the money. Now the representatives are shocked, SHOCKED to find there is environmental damage from a battery recycling center. CA grifted off Exide and now they don’t want to pay to clean up the mess they knew about and let happen. Good call judge.

Our liberal judges are part of the problem. They are globalist influenced weasels. And self serving activist. Not someone who should be passing judgment. I wouldn't to be before them. Who knows what they'll do. Death sentences to smokers and deniers. Or else.
