CHATTANOOGA ASBESTOS VIOLATIONS
In Chattanooga earlier this fall, Don Fillers was sentenced to a four year prison stint for violating asbestos regulations. Fillers and two of his associates were involved in the demolition of an old textile mill in Chattanooga that allowed asbestos-containing dust to blow through the surrounding area in 2004 and 2005. The site required emergency clean up measures when the violations were discovered. The three men involved in the project were assessed fines and restitution by the judge along with jail time.
Fillers is in the news again as he seeks pauper status and requests a court appointed attorney for his appeal. You can read the details in the Chattanooga Times Free Press article.
