Catching up on court cases


The lawsuit against 3M for PFC pollution? The Strib reports that th jury said no to the plaintiffs, so 3M walks away. Since this case went nowhere, the likelihood of any other litigation is low. The company has spent $15 million on cleanups so far, and could spend as much as another $50 million, so it’s not exactly getting a free pass.

The jury should get the case today, in the retrial of a Minnesota woman who allegedly engaged in illegal sharing of copyrighted music, reports AP.
