Greenpac suit seeks $50M in damages over claims of radioactive material found on Royal Ave. site


Niagara Gazette —

Eric Moses, a spokesman for Occidental, said the company had not been served in the lawsuit, and so offered no comment.

Greenpac’s complaint alleges that National Grid and Kimberly-Clark “disposed of, discharged, released, and otherwise arranged for the disposal of radioactive hazardous substances and wastes in various locations at 4400 Royal and/or arranged with (Occidental) or others to do so.”

Greenpac further claims the company “also suffered, is suffering, and will suffer substantial damages and injury with regard to loss of value of its property and other compensatory property damages,” because of the actions and omissions of the defendants. The company hopes to recover the full amount of $50 million, which would include compensation for legal fees incurred during the litigation of the suit, according to the complaint.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
