The Legal Aftermath Of The Ohio Train Disaster
Listen now
Description
The weeks since the disastrous derailment of a Norfolk Southern freight train carrying toxic chemicals have seen a flurry of lawsuits from residents and business owners in and around East Palestine, Ohio. On this week’s Pro Say, we’re joined by Ohio courts reporter Eric Heisig, who breaks down the legal blowback as well as what’s likely to come as we learn more about what exactly went awry and what it means for the region. Also on the show, we dig into Alec Baldwin’s efforts to get a special prosecutor booted from New Mexico’s case against him over the “Rust” shooting; the resignation of the Federal Trade Commission’s lone Republican member; and a clerk of court fired over a butt dial.
