The plaintiffs contend further that the district court abused its discretion by denying them discovery beyond what was available in files from prior Agent Orange litigation. The present appeal is only the last chapter in a thirty-year struggle by litigants, lawyers and judges of the New York East District Court. The Court has alleged consequences of the use of the Herbicide.
