How much is Indiana owed for the White River fish kill?

Warring troops of attorneys negotiating the resolution to a joint
federal-state lawsuit against Guide Corp. are nearing an answer, according to
court documents.

A federal judge has created an account to hold any cash the Anderson
automotive parts maker agrees to pay in restitution for its part in the 1999
pollution that wiped out nearly 5 million fish along a 50-mile stretch of
White River, a major source of drinking water in central Indiana.
