The movie a Civil Action covers the Woburn Case which was Anne Anderson and other small families who decided to sue the companies Beatrice Foods and W.R. Grace. The reason for Anderson and the other families to decide to sue was because they believe the companies dumping of poisonous chemicals was the reason to their children’s leukemia deaths. However, when they reached out to Jan Schlichtmann to handle their case he was not the most positive on wanting to help them, “Ms. Anderson, our firm is very small, three attorneys that's it, which means we can only take on so many cases at once and we have to be very careful on the ones we do take because we can't afford to lose, our clients pay nothing, we pay everything, and the only we get paid back

I spoke with David Architectural’s attorney and she is going to ask Judge Brennen for an additional thirty days to decide how to proceed on the fourth-party complaint against SCB and Arkema. The reason being she received roughly 70,000 project documents from Power and the plaintiff in the last two weeks and has not been able to get through them all.

As a result, she is looking to determine if SCB directed that the undercoating did not need to be applied. I responded, “Even if we did, which I doubt, so what?
