$350 million verdict upheld in Rocky Flats case Judge tacks on interest in suit by plant's neighbors By John C. Ensslin Rocky Mountain News (CO) May 21, 2008A federal judge has upheld a jury verdict of $350 million against the former operators of the defunct Rocky Flats nuclear plant in a class-action lawsuit brought by the plant's neighbors.
Judge John Kane affirmed the February 2006 verdict in a 73-page ruling released Tuesday and tacked on 8 percent interest compounded annually dating back to the time the suit was filed in January 1990.
A lawyer for the plaintiffs said that works out to more than $900 million for some 15,000 property owners in the judgment against Dow Chemical Co. and Rockwell International Corp.
"We're very pleased to have a ruling from Judge Kane on these issues and look forward to an end to this long, long process," said Steven Kelly, a lawyer for the property owners.
