Last week, Sharon Wilson blogged about Range Resources willful blindness to the EPA's charge that it had contaminated a Texas aquifer. Basically, despite EPA confronting the company with evidence of its pollution, Range had sent a letter to EPA thanking the agency for agreeing that Range wasn't responsible for pollution.

Yesterday, the other shoe dropped.  Sharon has the full story over at Bluedaze, including context and links.

In short, the Department of Justice backed up the EPA's emergency order against Range Resources by filing a complaint in federal district court.
