NEW YORK Pittsburgh-based
U.S. Steel Corp. has asked a judge in U.S. District Court in
Indiana to hear its arguments on why a complaint filed against
the steelmaker by federal and state environmental agencies
should be dismissed.
The U.S. Justice Department does
not object to the request, according to court documents filed
late last week.
The lawsuit, originally filed in August, alleges that the
steelmaker violated the Clean Air Act at its Gary (Ind.) Works,
Great Lakes (Ecorse, Mich.) Works and Granite City (Ill.) Works
