Abstract:

Between 1967 and 1971, Ford's assembly plant in Mahwah, N.J. (the country's largest auto factory when it was opened in 1955) dumped "paint sludge" and other industrial waste in the Ramapough Mountain Indians' backyard. The Ramapo and their legal counsel maintain that the result was a deadly mix of toxic chemicals, including PCBs, Freon, heavy metals, lead and arsenic that saturated the soil and traveled through the air when the highly combustible chemicals ignited and burned. Mann v. Ford follows community leaders Wayne Mann and Vivian Milligan and their lawyers over the course of five years as their fight for justice takes them from community centers to courtroom of American justice to the halls of Congress.
