Weyerhaeuser asks for reconsideration of ruling.

Weyerhaeuser Co., Federal Way, Washington, USA, is seeking immediate review of the decision by U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Margaret Murphy to deny a reconsideration of her summary, judgment ruling on liability arising from the bankruptcy of Paragon Trade Brands, Inc. (Paragon). Weyerhaeuser had requested Judge Murphy to reconsider her earlier decision that found Weyerhaeuser liable for breach of warranties in connection with the 1993 transfer of its disposable diaper business to Paragon.

In other Weyerhaeuser news: Weyerhaeuser Co., Ltd., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, said that tire Crown timberlands operations and five sawmills, all on the coast of British Columbia, are taking downtime in July as a result of poor market conditions. The five are West Island, North Island, Stillwater, Port McNeill, and Queen Charlotte Islands. On the mill side, Somass and Island Phoenix Division will be down for four weeks, Alberni Pacific Division for three weeks, New Westminster for two weeks and Chemainus for one week.
