Nippon's being sued! Nippon's suing back! The Port of Port Angeles is suing 22 of their own insurance carriers!
I have questions!
One: Did Nippon really try to stiff their contractors? It's not difficult to believe they'd be that bold. After all, they started work on this whole mess without having their permits. Nippon's used to throwing their weight around - AND they're clearly getting ready to pull up stakes in Port Angeles. So why pay their bills? That's wasted money, folks!
Two: Are Nippon's workers really so unskilled and untutored so as to have damaged their own equipment using too-cold water and unapproved boiler fuel? But you know, training costs money, and see comment above about wasted money.
Three: Did you have any idea that the Port had so many insurance carriers to sue? Hey, maybe some of them will sue the Port right back.
Forget being "The Center Of It All," or "The Authentic Northwest," or even "Sawblade Central." No, it turns out Port Angeles is actually the capitol of "The Litigation Nation."
It's just too bad that NONE of these lawsuits is about actually improving the quality of life in Clallam County. In other words, where are the good, righteous and productive lawsuits?
