Class Action Lawsuit
U.S. Navy Sailors have won a crucial battle in the
United States District Court in San Diego against Tokyo Electric Power Company,
known as TEPCO. A Federal judge has ruled that the sailors’ class action law
suit may go forward against TEPCO and additional Defendants General Electric,
EBASCO, Toshiba and Hitachi, the builders of the Fukushima nuclear reactors.
The 223 young sailors claim that TEPCO deliberately lied to the public and the
U.S. Navy about the radiation levels at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power
Plant at the time the Japanese Government was asking for help for victims of
the March 11, 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami. Up to 70,000 U.S. citizens were potentially
affected by the radiation and will be able to join the class action suit.
