TCE damages denied


"Poison pens?," last week's article on possible widespread dumping by Orlando Sentinel workers of the toxic chemical trichloroethylene, or TCE, reported on the lawsuit filed against the newspaper by downtown landowners alleging losses from environmental damage. Included was a reference to the landowners' request to seek additional punitive damages above and beyond any actual damages. That request, it turns out, was denied in December by Judge Joseph Baker, and no claim for punitive damages currently is pending. The lawsuit is ongoing.
