Indian Court Convicts Eight in Bhopal Disaster

More than 25 years after a plume of toxic gas from an American-owned chemical plant wafted over the slumbering city of Bhopal, killing thousands, eight former executives of the company’s Indian subsidiary were convicted of negligence on Monday, as reported in The New York Times.

The powerful film LITIGATING DISASTER explores how Union Carbide, a company owned by Dow Chemical, successfully manipulated both the US and the Indian legal systems against each other to avoid having to defend its record in the Bhopal plant in court.
