The paper examines how in 1996, Georgia Pacific was facing a multi-million dollar clean air lawsuit, which stated that the company failed to comply with federal regulations under the Clean Air Act. The paper explores how the company was alleged to have allowed emissions far exceeding the standards within the federal regulations to escape from eight factories in which wood products were produced.

The paper highlights how this was a significant case because of the implications for similar industries and the stipulations of the Clean Air Act that were being tested through the suit.
