This paper aims to answer the fundamental question regarding the litigation that took place after the Bhopal gas leak: was justice served? After first reviewing the events of the evening of the gas leak, citing relevant facts and figures, I go on to establish a jurisprudential basis on which we can analyze the court rulings.
