Deborah Clark, who grew up in northeast Oregon, has late-stage thyroid cancer. Her lawyers hope to fast-track her trial because of the advanced stage of her illness.
What's next

Because of her advanced illness, Deborah Clark's lawyer, Richard Eymann of Spokane, is asking for an expedited jury trial within the next five months to resolve her case before she dies. U.S. District Court Judge William F. Nielsen is expected to discuss Clark's motion for an expedited trial on Wednesday at the Hanford case's next status conference.


A Longview, Wash., resident with two sons in Spokane, Clark was born in Pendleton, Ore., on Dec. 15, 1949, two weeks after a secret military experiment called the "Green Run" dispersed radioactive iodine-131 from the Hanford Nuclear Reservation throughout portions of eastern Oregon and Washington, including Spokane.
