Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Radioactive and Toxic Contamination
In January 2006, a CBS News affiliate reported that Boeing agreed to pay $30 million to settle claims that the nearly 100 neighbors of the Santa Susana Field nuclear research facility were sickened by decades of radioactive and toxic contamination. The settlement, which ended an eight-year legal battle, was supposed to remain confidential, but one of the plaintiffs divulged the terms to the local media. POGO was unable to independently confirm the settlement amount.
