U.S. Supreme Court allows California movie makers to blast non-union movie extras working on UNION movies with "chemical weapons".

97 Civ 3081 (TPG) United States District Court
Southern District of New York
Cris Ericson, petitioner v. IDC Services, Inc., et al
528 US, 146 L Ed 2d,
2000 US Lexis 1560, 120 SCT 1265
Feb. 28, 2000

U.S. Supreme Court Reports by Daniel A. Klein
Cris Ericson argued in her brief that the use of
LEAD AZIDE in special effects in the movie industry
is a "chemical weapon" because a movie scene is
repeated over and over and over again for days,
and lead azide causes demylination of the long
haired nerve fibers of the brain, and lead azide
can cause cancer in a two hour industrial exposure.

The first page of the USDC/SDNY 97 Civ 3081 (TPG)
PUBLISHED Court Opinion refers to the chemicals
as "chemical weapons".
