August, 2004 – A federal court jury in Opelika awarded $20,709,000 to the City of Columbus, Georgia, Action Marine, Inc., and two individuals in an air pollution lawsuit filed against Continental Carbon and its parent company, China Synthetic Rubber Corporation. The jury verdict consisted of $1.9 million in compensatory damages, $1.294 million in attorneys’ fees and expenses and $17.5 million in punitive damages. The case was tried under Georgia law since all of the damages occurred in Georgia even though the polluting emissions came from the plant located in Phenix City.
