Louisiana Attorney General Files Restraining Order Over Ebola Waste
Louisiana's Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has filed a temporary restraining order to prevent a Louisiana company from taking for disposal, the incinerated belongings of a Dallas man who died last week from Ebola.
Caldwell says there are just too many unknowns right now, and he says it's absurd to transport something potentially hazardous across state lines.
Caldwell says the six truckloads of possibly contaminated stuff was taken from Thomas Duncan's apartment to an incinerator in Port Arthur, Texas. The next scheduled stop is a landfill in Carlyss, Louisiana.
Caldwell adds they may not even need the temporary restraining order as the company who was going to take the ash said in a press release that they reversed that decision and will no longer take the waste until Louisiana officials say it would be okay.
