Court dismisses EPA letters

A court has tossed out two letters from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency in its pollution case against Middletown-based AK Steel.

Butler County Common Pleas Court Judge William Stapleton ruled July 27 that the two warnings issued by the EPA were "null and void and of no legal effect."

The letters, sent in 1997 and 2000, alleged that dust emissions from AK Steel's iron and steel furnaces in Middletown were a public nuisance.

Judge Stapleton also ruled that the steelmaker's 27-year-old regulatory exemption on dust emissions remains intact.

Company spokesman Alan McCoy said AK Steel has reduced dust emissions at the Middletown site by about 5,400 tons per year. "Despite the many false and defamatory allegations of its environmental compliance record, AK Steel spends millions of dollars each year in pollution control and pollution prevention projects," he said.

The ruling does not affect the lawsuit's status.

AK Steel, http://www.aksteel.com/, closed trading today at $14.01 per share on the New York Stock Exchange, a gain of 90 cents.
