» US sailors filed a new class action lawsuit against TEPCO

79 American veterans of 2011’s earthquake/tsunami relief Operation Tomadachi have filed a new $1 billion class action lawsuit against Tokyo Electric Power.

The suit includes an infant born with a genetic condition to a sailor who served on the USS Ronald Reagan as radiation poured over it during the Fukushima melt-downs, and an American teenager living near the stricken site. It has also been left open for “up to 70,000 U.S. citizens potentially affected by the radiation and will be able to join the class action suit.”
