Description:

"The legal thriller of the decade." --Cleveland Plain Dealer Now a Major Motion Picture! In this true story of an epic courtroom showdown, two of the nation's largest corporations stand accused of causing the deaths of children. Representing the bereaved parents, the unlikeliest of heroes emerges: a young, flamboyant Porsche-driving lawyer who hopes to win millions of dollars and ends up nearly losing everything, including his sanity. A searing, compelling tale of a legal system gone awry--one in which greed and power fight an unending struggle against justice--A Civil Action is also the story of how one determined man can ultimately make a difference. With an unstoppable narrative power, it is an unforgettable reading experience.

This story traces the formulation and outcome of a legal complaint filed by eight families against three local Woburn industries for improper handling and disposal of toxic chemicals. A Civil Action won Harr the 1996 National Book Critics Circle Award for nonfiction and earned him a spot on the New York Times Best Sellers List for 65 weeks. He also received the 1997 Environmental Awareness Award from the League of Conservation Voters for his ability to incorporate an environmental protection issue into his work and for his efforts to help raise awareness of environmental issues.
