Labor Undeterred by Drummond Verdict

After more than a decade of trying…to punish U.S. corporations for alleged wrongdoing overseas, organized labor lost the first such case ever to go before a jury… [L]awyers for both labor and corporate interests say rulings on appeals stemming from the trial may be more important in the long run than the verdict itself…. Families of the dead men and their union alleged the company was behind the gunshot killings by paramilitary forces. Jurors sided with Alabama-based Drummond, which denied any involvement with the killings or with militia forces. [also refers to Chevron]
