USS Reagan crew can sue Japanese company over Fukushima nuclear disaster - court

USS Reagan crew can sue Japanese company over Fukushima nuclear disaster - court --Up to 75,000 US citizens could have been affected by the meltdown[s] | 23 June 2017 | A federal appeals court has ruled that members of the US Navy can, in a US court, pursue their lawsuit which alleges that they were exposed to radiation while providing aid after the nuclear crisis in Fukushima, Japan. On Thursday, the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in favor of the sailors who were exposed to dangerous levels of radiation while providing humanitarian aid after an earthquake destroyed the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan. The ruling allows sailors, who were aboard the ship at the time, to pursue their lawsuit against the state-owned Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) for misrepresented radiation levels in the surrounding air and water. The lawsuit alleges that TEPCO misled them about the extent of the radiation leak.
