Rene Ryman's lawyer, Michael Howell, filed a lawsuit on her behalf in U.S. District Court in Albuquerque earlier this month against the University of California and other managers of the lab in the '40s and '50s, charging negligence and wrongful death. It could turn into a class action suit, Howell said.The press release for this lawsuit was posted here an the blog and contains a toll free number for Rene's attorney. If you are a Manhattan Project child I suggest you make the call.
"If enough people come forward, there's a chance we could do a medical-monitoring class action," Howell said.
That sort of suit, if successful, would pay for the testing of all people who grew up in the area at that time, he added.
