 Malibu Parents Take on SMMUSD in Court Today

Malibu parent Cindy Crawford will join other
parents,teachers and students, plaintiffs and attorneys at a press
conference in front of the  federal courthouse to discuss the federal
trial to order the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District to
remove toxic and illegal chemicals known as PCBs from its campuses.

Tuesday, May 17
Trial begins 10 am
United States District Courthouse
312 North Spring St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012After years of road blocks from EPA and the school district, the
non-profit America Unites for Kids along with the non-profit Public
Employees for Environmental Responsibility, filed a citizen suit
asking the federal court to order the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified
School District to remove toxic PCBs in violation of federal law from
its schools. The suit seeks no monetary damages, only an order to
remove PCBs. A citizen suit is a lawsuit brought by private citizens
to enforce a statue when enforcement agencies – such as the EPA – do
not. With Harvard researchers finding that up to 25,000 schools
nationally are laden with carcinogenic PCBs, which also impede normal
brain and body development, lower IQ and cause ADHD, this case is seen
as a “test case” with implications for over 20 million students across
the United States. Full background at http://bit.ly/1N31yoL
