    The US Department of Justice has issued a press release titled 'Taiwanese Shipping Company Convicted for Discharging Oily Bilge Waste into the Waters of American Samoa.' $250,000 of the assessed penalties are to be allocated for coral reef restoration projects (where the remaining $750,000 will go is anyone's guess). Read the full public release after the jump.
