A Civil Action is a 1998 legal drama that portrays the toxic tort lawsuit filed by 8 families from Woburn, Massachusetts against two businesses. The drama portrays the events of a real life case. It contains a great portrayal of the steps of a lawsuit, especially discovery, and settlement. Given that it centers around toxic torts, it is well-suited for this week’s discussion on torts. I’ve posted some material on the actual lawsuit, in case you would like additional information.
This week for your assignment you are to watch A Civil Action (A Civil Action (Links to an external site.) ) and answer the below questions (you should be able to answer these questions as you watch the movie). The movie is about 2 hours long. Who were the defendants in “A Civil Action”?
Why did the plaintiffs sue the defendants?
After deducting attorney’s fees and expenses, how much does each family receive as a settlement?
If you were the plaintiffs’ lawyer in this case what, if anything, would have done differently?
What administrative agency eventually became involved after the Woburn toxic tort case settled?
