February 13, 2019 update:
On Friday, February 8, 2019, the OUC removed plaintiffs’ complaint to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. The OUC contends that, because the contaminants identified in the Class Area include uranium and other radioactive materials, the case involves a “nuclear incident” under the Price Anderson Act (“PAA”), 42 U.S.C. 2012, et seq.The PAA provides for federal jurisdiction over cases involving “nuclear incidents.” Whether the case ultimately proceeds in state or federal court will not impact plaintiffs’ ability to continue investigating and pursuing their claims.” A copy of the notice of removal is available for download here.
