“A superior court judge put forward an order Wednesday to make DuPont’s subsidiaries liable for PFAS contamination caused by the original company if deemed responsible for damages alleged in a lawsuit filed by attorney general Josh Stein.

Stein told PCD a critical part of his 2020 lawsuit against PFAS-producing companies in North Carolina is targeting corporate shell games and ‘fraudulent conveyances’ — the illegal or unfair transfer of property or title — used by E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, the ‘Old DuPont’ founded in 1802, to avoid accountability for PFAS emissions.

‘DuPont sold its interests, its liabilities to Chemous and then created new corporations to try to insulate itself from any liability,’ Stein told PCD."
