Exide faces $80m bill as new lawsuit filed

Lead-acid firm Exide Technologies has been hit with $20 million of additional fines for alleged excess emissions of lead and arsenic.

The third amendment to the civil lawsuit filed by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) on May 28 brings the total penalties up to at least $80 million.

SCAQMD filed its original lawsuit against Exide in January 2014.  A second amended complaint filed on February 18 sought at least $60 million in penalties.
