Toxic Justice

"The fight for justice against corruption is never easy. It never has been and never will be. It exacts a toll on our self, our families, our friends, and especially our children. In the end, I believe, as in my case, the price we pay is well worth holding on to our dignity."
Frank Serpico

Toxic Justice, is the true story of a teacher's injury and battle for justice. In 1985, Nancy Swan was been teaching at Long Beach Middle School in Mississippi, where toxic chemicals were sprayed onto the roof during the school day. By the end of the week, Swan and more than two dozen children sustained serious and permanent respiratory, eye, and brain damage. By February 2000, Swan vs I.P.Inc., Jim English, MIRI, and Carboline Company, had became the longest active personal injury case in Mississippi history, capturing nationwide interest and changing in state law.

In 2000, just a few weeks before Swan's case was to be put before a jury, she suspected something was wrong. Disparate events began to weave together: murder, suicide, deceit, threats, criminals stalking her family, and an attempt on her life. Then the shock of realization -- she was being framed. But, what had she done? Why were others prohibited from helping her? Caught in a dangerous web with no way out, who could she trust? Nancy Swan goes head to head with a justice system that demands a price few can afford.

Toxic Justice, will reach into every home, school, courtroom, politician's office, medical and law school with a true story that reveals one of America's dirtiest secrets: how thousands of American school children and adults continue to be exposed to deadly toxins, denied chemical information, medical care, legal recourse, and denied justice.

In the vein of A Civil Action meets The Client, Toxic Justice will be the first book to be told by an insider, a victim of chemical poisoning, a plaintiff in a landmark toxic tort case, and a whistle-blower in a high-profile judicial bribery scandal.
