Jurist Fali Nariman regretted representing Union Carbide in Bhopal gas tragedy case: All the details here..

Jurist Fali S Nariman, who passed away at 95, leaves a legacy of landmark cases and accolades. Recognized as a leading constitutional lawyer in India, Nariman faced a poignant regret: his role in the Bhopal gas leak case. The 1984 Bhopal gas disaster, one of the worst industrial tragedies globally, claimed numerous lives. Nariman defended Union Carbide Corporation (UCC), the responsible entity, amid controversy and criticism. Despite his legal prowess, Nariman’s involvement faced scrutiny and backlash for perceived delaying tactics. The Bhopal case concluded in a 1989 out-of-court settlement, with UCC agreeing to a $470 million compensation. However, the resolution provided little relief for the victims, and Nariman’s moral dilemma persisted. His journey reflects the complexity of legal choices amid profound tragedy.
