#AceWorldNews says `Fukushima Fallout’ as `Sick US Sailors file new $1bln lawsuit against Tepco’

A total of 79 American sailors of the USS Ronald Reagan, which was stationed off Japanese coast at the time of the Fukushima disaster and took an active part in the relief operation, have filed a new class action suit demanding $1 billion in damages for the horrible conditions they developed after being dosed with radiation that swept over the ship following the nuclear fallout.

American veterans of 2011’s earthquake and tsunami relief operation called Tomadachi (“Friendship”) have implicated Tokyo Electric Power in covering-up of their exposure to radiation after the Fukushima operator confessed it had underestimated certain radiation readings by a factor of five.

The lawsuit cited a host of plaintiffs, most of them in their twenties, who had allegedly suffered a wide range of ailments, including leukemia, blindness and numerous genetic defects in their newborn children. It has also been left open for “up to 70,000 US citizens potentially affected by the radiation” that reached the Atlantic coast.

Facebook: “Facing a Lawsuit over False Likes”

#AceMedaiNews says according to #MediaSources the question being asked is ……… did Facebook user Anthony Ditirro like the USA Today Facebook page, or didn’t he? Perhaps the answer will emerge during court proceedings, as the Colorado resident filed a lawsuit against the social network, seeking class-action status, and claiming that Facebook falsified likes for advertising purposes, CNET reported. According to the suit, as reported by CNET, Ditirro appeared in at least one sponsored story, brought to his attention by one of his friends.
