State Of California Sues Company Over Weed Spray That Sickens Woman Living Near Railroad Tracks

From US news outlet 7 San Diego:
State Sues NCTD Over Weed Spray that Sickens Woman Living Near Railroad Tracks
The state of California is suing the North County Transit District (NCTD) over its failure to maintain accommodations made for an Oceanside woman sickened by the herbicides it uses to kill weeds along its railroad track.
Judy Kane’s home between Oceanside Boulevard and Wisconsin Avenue backs up against the tracks. She suffers from a chronic condition called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity that is aggravated by the herbicides the NCTD uses to kill weeds on the other side of her fence.
Kane has outfitted her home with hospital-grade air purifiers and always has a mask handy when she's outside. When the NCTD sprays the area behind her home, the side effects of her disease can flare up for weeks at a time.
