From, a website sponsored by the companies involved in the lead paint litigation, a statement.

“Today’s ruling is a landmark victory for common sense and for responsible companies that did the right thing,” said Charles H. Moellenberg, Jr., an attorney for The Sherwin-Williams Company, speaking on behalf of defendants Sherwin-Williams and Millennium Holdings, Inc. “This case never should have been filed – it was factually wrong and legally flawed. A company should not be held liable when there is no proof that it did anything wrong. It has taken nine years and two juries, but the Supreme Court’s decision today puts public nuisance law in Rhode Island squarely in line with the overwhelming majority of jurisdictions of the United States.”
