Yolo County To Receive $420K in Rite Aid Settlement
Rite Aid will pay Yolo County $420,000 as its share of a $12.3 million settlement between California local governments and the pharmacy. The suit -- led by Los Angeles, San Joaquin and Riverside counties -- claimed that more than 600 California Rite Aid locations unlawfully disposed of toxic wastes and materials during a six-and-a-half-year period. The suit was settled last month.
