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.

Viewmaster/Tyco years ago had a same complaint to employees and some died from there Chemicals being poured into the water system that Us as Employee's were drinking for Years . And still to this day We continue to get Letters from the CEO's requesting to visit there Dr's to get medical work ups. Gee, Wonder Why? Lawsuits, but nothing has been spoken of it yet and alot of Employees have died from Poison in the Water from the Chemicals there were dumping out back and there is Proof and Viewmaster/Tyco have NEVER denied it, but have never paid for it either.
So DIsney better watch it as Viewmaster/Tyco Toy Company went belly up.

I think I speak for all of us when I say that long before Disney needs to start worrying about stupid toxins in their water, they should focus on getting their children's software to play on windows operating systems newer than 98. My kids want their Mickey Mouse Kindergarden to work, and I'm not about to take the time to read to them with a perfectly good T.V. sitting right there in front of them. I'm just sayin-
