Rhode Island Wants $2.4 Billion for Lead Paint Cleanup

In the wake of the February 2006 jury verdict against three former lead paint manufacturers, finding that the defendants had created a public nuisance, the State of Rhode Island has filed with the trial court a cleanup plan with a $2.4 billion price tag.  The plan proposes the cleanup of thousands of homes in the state.  The defendants have appealed the February 2006 jury verdict.  See Eric Tucker's story for The Associated Press.
