You have multi-national corporation. You buy property next to mine and begin polluting air, water, etc.
You reap $100s of millions, possibly billions, of dollars in the years I am forced to spend my money and time because of loss of quality of life and property values and increased property taxes to support your infrastructure.
20 yrs. later I win a lawsuit. I get $2 million dollars, well, $1 million (because my pro-bono liaryer gets half). More than the cost of my property, and hey if my air still reeks, my water is unusable, etc. I can always move with my "fat" payout. :rolleyes:
Except I kinda liked it where I was before you were able to come in, my family had lived there for generations, hell, the house might have been built by my grandfather (though you can't put a dollar figure on that, so fuck me), fuck shit up, and still walk away with a pile of money making it well worth your time.
Sounds like a plan.
