Chromium 6 contamination is a scary prospect, but in the absence of any official retort, it’s easy to let imagination take hold. Until the allegations of contamination levied in a recent spate of lawsuits against the Walt Disney Co. are vetted in a courtroom, it’s best to leave the “imagineering” to the studios.
Certainly, allegations that Disney has been dumping water tainted with cancer-causing chromium 6 and other toxic chemicals at its Imagineering studios are serious, but it’s important to remember that lawsuits can evolve or devolve at a rapid pace on the long road to the courtroom.
In the meantime, it’s pretty standard for both sides of the lawsuit to remain fairly mum, not wanting to tip each other off. In that information vacuum, and without the luxury of courtroom exhibits, newspapers are forced to become intrepid and even more resourceful. That also takes time.
