Bhopal Gas Tragedy: No private party can claim damages, Union Carbide tells SC

Asserting that no private individual can lay a claim against it for damages, the Union Carbide Corporation (UCC) has moved the Supreme Court against letting the victims’ organisations intervene in the curative petition that was filed by the central government to seek additional compensation for the victims of the 1984 Bhopal gas tragedy...the UCC argued…If the non-applicants find fault with any of these (orders), they would have to challenge the actions of the Union of India — they cannot seek to become co-petitioners…all private parties have to appear through the Union of India and have no independent right of carriage of proceedings.
