They bought it off with $13.2 million and get away with it. Just imagine what harm they've done to the environment and how much money they've made by doing so if they were prepared to pay this much to avoid a probe. I'm not too happy about this, there's probably too little punishment here for Lumber Liquidators to change their ways.
