A US court upheld the lawsuit brought by hundreds of sailors exposed to radiation as part of the response to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. The lawsuit originally was just against TEPCO. Along with this news that the district court has upheld the suit so it can move forward, the cause now includes GE, Hitachi, Ebasco and Toshiba as defendants. The list of new defendants includes all the parties involved in the design and construction of the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi. Greenpeace had previously brought this issue up, that the designers and construction companies responsible for the failed plant should be held liable for the massive failure during the disaster.
