"We're ready, willing and able - anxious, in fact - to have this case move forward," Brewer said.3M's move to disqualify Covington was a major legal detour for the case, and the firm had put 15 months of workinto it on the state's behalf.In part of its arguments before the Court of Appeals, the state had argued that3Messentially waived its right toseek Covington's disqualification by waiting so long, pushing the deadline set for the discovery process where sidesare allowed to gather evidence. Attorneys for3Mcountered that it had not realized the extent of Covington's legalinvolvement with PFC-related issues.The Appeals Court noted the delay "might well be perceived as tactical maneuvering. And3M's claim that it onlyrealized at that late date that there may be a conflict is clearly contradicted by the record," the judges wrote. "But3M's knowledge of the conflict, by itself, is not sufficient to avoid disqualification. Covington had the duty to avoidconflicts and to obtain the informed consent of its former client, and it failed to obtain this consent."In a separate case,3Malso has filed a suit in Ramsey County District Court seeking damages against Covington.To read Monday's opinion, go to: .Jim Anderson · 651-925-5039Twitter: @StribJANderson

All Rights ReservedSection:EDITORIAL; Pg. A13Length:549 wordsByline:Steve FlickBodyAs a Missouri businessman and a farmer, I see firsthand the adverse effects climate change has on our state's ruraleconomy. That's why President Obama is right to address climate change, and address it now.Last year Missouri was hit with a withering drought, more than 100 record-high temperatures, and a MississippiRiver that was so low it slowed transportation of our crops to market.The president's common-sense climate plan rises to meet our moral obligation to future generations. Itdemonstratesleadership on the central environmental crisis of our time. And because it makes a lot of economicsense, the president's plan deserves the support of Missouri's rural business community.The climate plan's centerpiece addresses an astonishing fact - that there are no federal limits on carbon emissionsfrom our nation's power plants, our single-largest source of the carbon pollution that harms our health and fuelsclimate change.In 2011, Missouri emitted 87 million tons of carbon dioxide, making our state the eighth-worst in the nation for totalcarbon pollution, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
