I watched a PBS special on this very problem, and one of the law suits was 
from an American company (if memory serves) suing a state or county in 
Mexico over the rights to use a landfill they had bought (    at which 
time, the landfill had been closed), in order to use that site for dumping 
toxic waste.  The locals lost the battle.  Go figure...
