HOLDING POLLUTERS ACCOUNTABLE MASS TORTS AND CLASS ACTIONS

Strom v. Boeing / Electromagnetic Pulse Radiation

Electromagnetic Pulse Radiation. From the early-to mid-1980s, hundreds of employees were continually exposed to high doses of electromagnetic pulse (EMP) radiation while working for the Boeing Corporation. In 1985, one employee was diagnosed with a rare leukemia. After filing a workers? compensation claim, the man uncovered documents showing that Boeing had been using its workers to test the effects of EMP for the Defense Department. In June 1988, he filed a $7 million class action suit against Boeing and other companies. In August 1990, Boeing settled, paying over $500,000 to the man and his family (who established a foundation dedicated to funding EMP education and litigation), as well as funding medical exams and monitoring for workers. After the suit, Boeing minimized employee EMP radiation exposure, implemented an employee health-monitoring program and warned employees of possible dangers during medical examinations. 'Safeguarding Employee Health,' Trial Lawyers Doing Public Justice (August 1991), citing Strom v. Boeing, No. 88-2-10752-1 (King County Super. Ct., Wash., settlement August 15, 1990); Conklin, Ellis, 'His Last Ounce Of Courage,' Seattle Post-Intelligencer, September 6, 1990; Greenwald, Judy, 'Boeing settles radiation experiment suit,' Business Insurance, August 27, 1990.
