Pratt & Whitney Sued Over Brain Cancer Cluster

February 11, 2010 - The first lawsuit related to the pediatric brain cancer cluster formally confirmed in the Acreage last week was filed today in federal court. Four families are named as plaintiffs in a class action suit alleging that since the 1950's, Pratt & Whitney has been dumping chemical pollutants known to cause cancer, contaminating the area. The pleadings, prepared by the law firm of Reid and Zobel state that the estimated class size is 10,000 homeowners.
