Jury Sets Damage Amount In This Week's C8 Lawsuit

A federal jury in Columbus says DuPont should pay 500 thousand dollars in punitive damages to an Ohio man in a chemical illness lawsuit. Earlier this week, the same jury ruled a chemical used by DuPont at its Washington Works plant in West Virginia, C8, caused the man to get cancer and awarded him 5.1 million dollars. A DuPont spokesperson says the verdict will be appealed, and jurors were misled about the risk of the chemical exposure. C8 is a chemical used to make teflon.
