Illinois attorney general Lisa Madigan hit Baxter Healthcare (NYSE:BAX) with a lawsuit yesterday, alleging that the company’s R&D facility dumped contaminated wastewater into a tributary that feeds into Long Lake, polluting the waters beyond allowable limits.
Madigan filed the complaint in Lake County Circuit Court and urged the court to force Baxter to stop over-polluting the tributary, as well as pay a penalty for violating its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit.
