Disney Kills

Lawsuit Claims

3/20/2009 9:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Walt Disney CompanyA Burbank family is suing the Walt Disney Company, claiming toxins from its Burbank headquarters contaminated the surrounding community, resulting in death.

Dennis Jackson claims Disney's air conditioning system contained contaminated wastewater laden with toxic chemicals that migrated into nearby residential areas and even contaminated drinking water.

The lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, claims Louise Jackson, who lived with her family in the neighborhood, died as a result of the pollutants. The suit claims residents now live in "terror of emissions."

The suit says Disney has been using the same cooling system since 1957.

Gee, I need money let's sue Disney.

Christ, what's with all these stupid lawsuits. One person died out of how many people living in that area, not to mention the thousands that work on the lot.

Actually the lawsuit has already been thrown out. This reliable information has been acquired through the internet's secret tubes.

Find me a place in this world that isn't polluted. Or, for that matter, anything you can eat, breath, or swim in. We're screwed.

Actually it was probably form Lockheed Martin... They contaminated the Burbank Water supply and soil years ago. It's sad, many Burbank neighborhoods have lost hundreds of people to cancer. Unfortunately a judge ruled against them as well in 2000.
