Raytheon Class Action Lawsuit

Raytheon Class Action Lawsuit

Joe Saunders will meet with concerned Azalea residents this evening ( March 8th 2008 ) to discuss the groundwater contamination by Raytheon. The meeting will be held at Azalea Baptist Church, 7900 22nd Ave. North, St. Petersburg beginning at 7:30pm. Attorney Saunders will discuss the class action lawsuit against Raytheon as well as the status of the contamination investigation. Residents first learned of the problem after media reports discovered unacceptable levels of 1,4-dioxane, trichloroethylene, and vinyl chloride in the neighborhood groundwater. While Raytheon and the DEP continue to state there are no evidence of health issues related to the toxic plume, other experts have cautioned that it may be too early to make that determination. The toxic plume has caused a diminution of property values in the neighborhood. At least three real estate closings have failed as a result of the plume.
