Dec. 29

         According to the online articles I have 
read about this case, six of the plaintiffs 
worked on the flight deck and two were in the air handling department.

         Do a Google search for "Paul Garner" and 
"Fukushima" to obtain some superficial details 
and a list of the plaintiffs.  The news articles soon become repetitious.
