AbstractThe article discusses a court case on an environmental class action lawsuit against nickel refinery Inco Ltd. at Port Colborne in Ontario. The Canadian court held Inco liable to the landowners based on the nickel particulates found in the residents' soil that affected real estate values. However, the court ruled that the nickel levels were unlikely to pose adverse effects or risks to human health.
