Hall Litigation (Personal Injury and Property Damage)

“[McDermott subsidiary] B&W and Atlantic Richfield Company (“ARCO”) are defendants in a lawsuit filed on June 7, 1994 by Donald F. Hall, Mary Ann Hall and others in the U. S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. The suit involves approximately 500 separate claims for compensatory and punitive damages relating to the operation of two former nuclear fuel processing facilities located in Pennsylvania (the “Hall Litigation”). The plaintiffs in the Hall Litigation allege, among other things, that they suffered personal injury, property damage and other damages as a result of radioactive emissions from these facilities…In 1998, B&W settled all pending and future punitive damage claims in the Hall Litigation for $8.0 million for which B&W seeks reimbursement from other parties.”
