The example cited from the chapter is of a class action lawsuits that were brought on the US-contractor that produced a hazardous chemical; agent orange. There are often horror stories of those soldiers who used the material and those on the receiving end of an agent orange attack, alike, has health problems that rose to the level that became deadly as the agent itself was found to be a cancerous material. Internationally, there are additional cases of corporations participating in war efforts that either directly led to harm of individuals, or participated in regulatory structures that prevented individuals from accessing their rights, specifically those in the realm of socio-economics. While many of the examples have focused on corporations that have been the direct action of their governments, there is good reason for this. Courts seem specifically equipped and empowered to check the actions of other government branches, and the realm of civil and criminal court proceedings needs an issue of legal standing to make any determination. With a lack of clear legal direction, especially in the realm of corporations acting in their own direction, there is less stringent legal framework to make the decision from, if you are taking the perspective of the courts. There is an ever increasing body of laws that direct the courts to understand the roles and responsibilities of corporations and those they may do no harm against, but it is still preferred by the courts to make the legal determination as it relates to a governmental action or not.
