Steve, never heard of him. Just one of many "gold digging" attorneys. Not much different than the latest $100M lawsuit coming out of the tragic Sandy Hook event. Not surprised.

Cancer now has a latency period of less than two years?? At the end of the article, Garner says TEPCO "lulled" the entire world into a false sense of security.

>> The plaintiffs include eight troops serving on the USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier - one of whom was pregnant at the time of the alleged exposure - and her daughter.
>> They charge that the utility, known as TEPCO, "knowingly and negligently caused, permitted and allowed misleading information concerning the true condition of the (plant) to be disseminated to the public, including the U.S. Navy Department," according to the complaint filed on Dec. 21 in a U.S. federal court in San Diego.
