    I'll give you that, the break in is not fact.
    All of the LnI claims and Ecology claims are fact. All samples have been ran through labs and investigated. The final findings when these organizations Issue a fine, are fact. The investigation is over. Seasoft scuba was found guilty and fined. This is fact.

    No they aren't. No one with any knowledge of the legal system would claim that.

    What do you think "willful serious" means?

    An opinion. That is why they are called "judgements," "rulings," and "opinions."

    There are a ton of times when those are completely wrong. As such I wouldn't claim any legal document as representing fact, and certainly not one that is just a one sided legal filing.

    I have no horse in this fight, as far as I know I don't own any Sea Soft products I've never intended to purchase any Sea Soft products. Though it is suspicious that a group of people got together to create an account with a hard on for this particular business.

    I spread more lead around in a day quail hunting than Seasoft would in lifetimes. The effect of your crusade will be to make sure nobody dares manufacture anything with lead in the US.

    They are administrative findings which you are obligated to appeal if you dispute them. Seasoft did not appeal the MTCA penalty which similar to failing to contest a traffic ticket (despite the vast difference in the fine they are administratively similar). Once the deadline to appeal is missed, you have defaulted to guilty.

    1) you only know what Bruce claims to have spilled
    2) willfully violating the law is somehow ok? It put seasoft at an advantage over competitors and Bruce was able to profit by externalizing the expenses of proper dangerous waste management to the public
    3) he poisoned his employees - also willfully - how much lead did they bring home on their clothes and share with their families? That is a preventable injury that he profited off of.

    What is WILLFUL? definition of WILLFUL (Black's Law Dictionary)
    The MTCA violation was intentional, not due to mere negligence. And by failing to appeal, this is an admission of guilt and that the citation is accurate.
