Lawsuits against Whirlpool Corp. approved to proceed to trial
On Monday, February 10 U.S. District Judge James Carr ruled that personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits filed against Whirlpool Corp. may proceed in federal court.
Families from Clyde, Ohio have sued the company after nearly 40 children were diagnosed with cancer. Investigators believe that chemicals released from the washing machine plant are causing cancer throughout the town. Judge Carr, however, dismissed claims against Whirlpool of reckless conduct and fraud.
The diagnoses began in the mid-1990’s and peaked in 2006. Nine children in Clyde were diagnosed with cancer in 2006.
