Final arguments due in trial over lead paint:

Paint Makers Try to Hold Off Lead-Hazard Court Ruling:

Final arguments are due today in a trial over whether companies that produced lead paint used to cover hundreds of thousands of homes in California decades ago should have to remove it. If the court rules against paint makers Sherwin-Williams, ConAgra, and DuPont they would have to spend about $2.5B to strip the potentially poisonous paint. The case was filed by 10 city and county governments in California claiming the lead is harmful to children. Parents, please remind your kids not to eat paint chips.
