Greenpeace has filed a lawsuit in federal district court in Washington alleging that Dow Chemical and Sasol engaged in corporate espionage against the environmental organization from 1998-2000. The suit alleges that Dow and Sasol, which was called Condea Vista at the time, along with the public relations firms Denzenhall Resources (Washington) and Ketchum (New York), hired private investigators from the now defunct firm Beckett Brown International (BBI) to steal “thousands of documents, intercept phone call records, trespass, and conduct unlawful surveillance and theft of confidential information related to Greenpeace’s public interest work.”

Industry attorneys and other Washington experts say the Republican’s control of the House next year will have an important influence on industry’s agenda, with the most significant impact expected for attempts to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). One of the biggest changes will be in the House Ways and Means Committee, where chairman Henry Waxman (D., CA) is expected to be replaced by Fred Upton (R., MI). Another important move will be for Representative Dave Camp (R., MI) whose district includes Midland, MI—corporate headquarters of Dow Chemical and Dow Corning. He is set to become chair of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which has control over U.S. tax and trade policies. Camp was born and raised in Midland and continues to reside there.
