PARKERSBURG, WV – Today, Keep Your Promises advisor Harold Bock issued a statement on behalf of the campaign applauding the jury’s verdict in favor of plaintiff Carla Bartlett in the first DuPont C-8 bellwether trial:

“We at Keep Your Promises are thrilled by the jury’s decision in this case. While this verdict is just a small step in holding DuPont accountable, it serves to vindicate all those who have been fighting for DuPont to do the right thing, a fight that has lasted over a decade.

We wish to congratulate Carla Bartlett for holding DuPont accountable, and we hope that the result in this trial gives everyone harmed by C-8 renewed hope that DuPont will be forced to keep its promises to mid-Ohio Valley communities in the near future.”
