Judge Tosses Fukushima Radiation Class Actions Brought by U.S. Sailors

Judge Tosses Fukushima Radiation Class Actions Brought by U.S. Sailors | 04 March 2019 | Hundreds of American sailors who filed two class actions claiming to have suffered physical abnormalities, cancer and death stemming from exposure to radiation while on a humanitarian mission to Fukushima, Japan, in 2011 were dealt a blow Monday when their cases were dismissed, paving the way for their claims to be brought in Japan. U.S. District Judge Janis Sammartino found in a "close call" in two separate orders, class actions brought against Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, and General Electric, should be dismissed without prejudice so the service members' claims could be brought in Japan if they choose to revive them. The Navy sailors brought two class action cases against TEPCO and GE in 2012 and 2017 over claims they've suffered -- or will suffer in the future -- serious physical injuries, cancer and death due to radiation they were exposed to while serving on the USS Ronald Reagan.
