The NC Supreme Court on Friday issued a decision confirming that the DuPont corporation cannot escape liability for massive, continuing PFAS pollution in North Carolina. The schemers at DuPont had attempted to shelter $20 billion in assets from the victims of PFAS pollution by setting up paper corporations in another state and transferring the money to them.
In the ruling, written by Justice Anita Earls, the Court upheld the decision of a special Business Court which concluded that DuPont created Chemours and a complex corporate reorganization in an attempt to escape liability and “to defraud its creditors.”
