Madison-Kipp asked governor’s office to interfere in lawsuit, DNR official says

Madison-Kipp Corp. asked Gov. Scott Walker’s office to intervene in an ongoing investigation at the company’s plant on the East Side of Madison — and to interfere with a lawsuit filed by its neighbors — according to testimony from a state official in a federal lawsuit.
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources official charged with overseeing testing and cleanup at the Madison-Kipp site said that in 30 years of working at the DNR he “could recall no instance where a company went to the governor’s office complaining” about his decisions, according to court documents filed last week in a lawsuit filed by neighbors of the site.
