LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
In November, 2004, a King City employee was seen burying eight containers of hazardous materials, later discovered to be automobile fluids and fuel, inside a closed landfill near a broccoli field. The employee had been ordered to dispose of the liquid by his boss, Salvador Morales, because of a pending inspection by the department of health. In an earlier lawsuit Morales was found guilty of improperly disposing hazardous and waste materials and was sentenced to 30 days in jail, three years probation and a $10,000 fine. The Salinas Valley city agreed to pay $10,000 in fines and more than $524,000 in costs to Monterey County and bring the city up to code on hazardous waste storage and disposal.
