Heart Disease Research Found. v. General Motors Corp.

Citation: 2 ELR 20111
No. No. 71 Civ. 1667 HRT, 3 ERC 1710/(S.D.N.Y., 02/03/1972)

Suit for $375 trillion damages allegedly incurred by plaintiffs and 125 million Americans living in urban areas as a result of defendants' conspiracy to suppress the development of antipollution devices for automobiles in violation of federal anti-trust laws is dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted. Likewise plaintiffs' reliance upon the general welfare clause of the U.S. Constitution and the Environmental Quality Improvement Act of 1970 is illfounded.
