CHILD CANCER FEARS
Judge dismisses some claims made in Ohio child cancer cluster lawsuit against Whirlpool

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 10:47 AM EST
TOLEDO, Ohio


A federal judge in Ohio has dismissed some of the claims made against Whirlpool Corp. in a civil lawsuit filed by families whose children have been among dozens sickened in a cancer cluster.

The ruling will allow the families to move forward with its lawsuit linking Whirlpool's washing machine factory in northern Ohio to the cancer cases.

The judge on Monday dismissed allegations of reckless conduct and fraud along with claims that the cancer cluster hurt property values around the city of Clyde.

Benton Harbor, Mich.-based Whirlpool says the allegations aren't based on scientific or medical fact.

The lawsuit says a chemical compound suspected of causing cancer came from the Whirlpool plant near where 35 children have been diagnosed with cancer and three have died since the mid-1990s.
