Environmental Attorney Jim Ferraro, author of new book "Blindsided," talks his journey to take on a case against chemical giant DuPont - one that many before him turned down. Castillo vs. DuPont was a ten-year case that found Ferraro fighting for a disabled boy. The child was born with no eyes because his mother had been sprayed with a colorless and odorless liquid while she was pregnant with him. No one wanted to take the case because of how difficult it is to take on a company the size of DuPont. Ferraro notes that he decided to write the book about his journey decades later because of how relevant the fight for environmental law is today. He points out that the current presidential administration has cut EPA funding by a third.
