Ford Settles New Jersey Toxic Tort Case

According to this report in The Record, Ford Motor Co. yesterday reached a settlement in which Ford agreed to pay millions of dollars to settle the claims of 600 residents of Upper Ringwood, NJ.  Although the settlement amount is confidential, the article mentions $10 million as an amount stated by sources.  The claims involved allegations of asthma, cancer, and other illnesses that residents claimed were attributable to Ford's 1960s-1970s dumping of paint sludge in a former mining area of Ringwood.
