Partial Restitution for Rotting Meat Cleanup

From the Associated Press:

The owner of a South Dakota packing plant who left behind 44 tons of rotting kosher bison meat when he relocated his business to Minnesota has agreed to pay part of the cost of cleaning up the mess, his attorney said.

Only part of the cost? Given that the guy abandoned 44 tons of meat, why is anyone else having to pay a dime?

Well, at least, as part of a lawsuit he’s facing, he’s potentially on the hook for up to $7 million. Link.
