Jury Rules in Favor of Coal Ash Cleanup Workers

A federal jury today ruled that Jacobs Engineering, the contractor in charge of cleanup efforts following the 2008 Kingston Fossil Fuel Power Plant spill, failed to keep laborers safe during the process and likely caused the poisoning of many workers, Knoxnews reports. More than 30 workers have died since the cleanup and more than 250 are sick or dying. The verdict means the workers will get a chance to seek damages, including money to cover medical testing for all laborers who worked at the site.
