Citizens sued by Titan Cement can move on with their lives
After a year of stress and anxiety over a frivolous lawsuit filed by foreign-owned Titan Cement, Kayne Darrell and Dr. David Hill can breathe a sigh of relief. Through mediation the suit filed by Titan on Feb. 25, 2011 in U.S. District Court, has been resolved. Click here to read the full Star News article. More news clips below.
Statements from Titan say "Prior to [the] mediation, we had not personally met and spoken with Dr. Hill and Ms. Darrell. Having done so, we do not believe that either Dr. Hill or Ms. Darrell intentionally made any false statements about Titan or our plant in New Hanover County."
Could this matter have been resolved if Titan communicated with the community they wish to inhabit? Absolutely.
As for Kayne and Dr. Hill, show your support for the brave citizens who battled a Titan and survived! Their attorneys Gary Shipman and William Wright, of Shipman and Wright in Wilmington, also deserve to be acknowledged for their hard work in representing Kayne and Dr. Hill.
