This clip is based on the true court case, Anderson v. Cryovac, Inc., which involved environmental pollution in Woburn, Massachussetts in the 1980s. The case centered on trichloroethylene, a solvent that had contaminated nearby groundwater and seems to have caused fatal cases of leukemia and cancer. In this scene, the plaintiff's attorney goes back and forth with the opposing party to reach a settlement before the trial begins.
