Rachel Maddow reports that as citizen's environmental groups were bringing suit against Duke Energy, now responsible for the environmental damage in North Carolina after a massive coal ash spill, the state agency moved in, took over the case and assessed a minor fine ending the case. There were no provisions for cleanup or damages. State regulators blocked lawsuits and assessed $99,111 fine, but the company is worth $50 billion.
