Freedom Industries Heads To Court Friday

Freedom Industries is heading back to bankruptcy court for a hearing this Friday. The company wants to hire experts and environmental consultants to assess the circumstances surrounding the January 9th spill, and wants to expedite the hearing before evidence is removed or destroyed. The company is under a state order to dismantle storage tanks in Charleston. Under the Department of Environmental Protection order, Freedom has to start removing tanks by March 15. The company also is looking to hire more lawyers and a financial adviser. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, Freedom was approved to borrow up to $4 million.
