NJ residents get more money in Ford pollution suit

December 10, 2009 - The borough of Ringwood, New Jersey has agreed to a financial settlement with more than 600 current or former Upper Ringwood residents who sued it over Ford Motor Co.'s dumping in their neighborhood 40 years ago.

The agreement follows a $10 million settlement in September that residents' attorneys reached with Ford and a handful of companies involved in the dumping. At that time, residents - who claim a wave of unexplained deaths and illnesses in the community were caused by dumping - said the amount won't begin to cover their pain and suffering.
