DuPont Responds to Spelter, W.Va., Lawsuit Decision
Date:10/19/2007

Company Will Appeal to State Supreme Court

WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The following statement is in response to today's verdict in the Spelter, W.Va., zinc smelter class action lawsuit. The statement is to be attributed to DuPont General Counsel Stacey J. Mobley.

DuPont completed the cleanup in 2006, providing a substantial benefit to the community. A portion of the site is now available for redevelopment.

"The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in conjunction with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, conducted off-site soil testing prior to DuPont's remediation of the Spelter site. Based on these results, neither agency ordered DuPont to conduct additional
