liable to

Reply Mon 27 Sep, 2010 02:55 am
A Pittsburgh steel company, liable to pay workers a great deal of money if it closed a mill, halted all operations and tried to argue that it wasn’t really shutting the place down, just “indefinitely idling” it.

What does "liable to" mean here, "likely" or "subject to"?

It seems to be legally obligated in this case.
