Tonawanda Coke trial closings under way



But Marcia Williams, a consultant who testified for Tonawanda Coke, said the sludge was exempt from the law as it was properly recycled as part of a continuous manufacturing process at the plant. 

Mango however, tried to debunk Williams’ credibility. 

“All you have from defense is Marcia Williams, a witness who has never done a RCRA inspection in her life, a witness who has never been at Tonawanda Coke,” Mango said before noting that Williams’ firm was paid $95,000 for her work on the case.

But despite Mango’s stance, Linsin argued that Williams was the superior witness. 

“She did her homework, she was simply more credible,” Linsin said. 

Closing arguments from Kamholz’s attorney, Rod Personius, as well as a rebuttal from the prosecution are scheduled for today.
