U.S. Navy sailors sue Japan over nuclear accident By Tom Watkins and Lateef Mungin CNN December 28, 2012(CNN) -- Eight U.S. Navy sailors who were aboard a U.S. aircraft carrier off Japan after last year's Fukushima nuclear accident have sued the Tokyo Electric Power Company alleging a series of failures, including lying.
The suit, filed December 21 in U.S. District Court Southern District of California, alleges that the sailors -- among some 5,500 who were aboard the USS Ronald Reagan as it was providing aid to the stricken zone -- were themselves sickened as a result of exposure to radiation that escaped from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP).
"They have physical problems," said Paul C. Garner, the plaintiffs' attorney, in an interview with CNN affiliate KGTV in San Diego, the home port of the ship. "One of them is bleeding from his rectum; already, the others have problems with thyroid glands."
