Tech Companies Sued For Causing Cancer In "Clean Room" Workers

The New York Law Journal is reporting that a group of employees at IBM who worked in a particular "clean room" and now have cancer are suing IBM and the manufacturers of several chemicals used in the clean room for damages. All of the men are under the age of 30, and two of their coworkers have already died of cancer. The article quotes the lawyer defending the men as saying, "What makes [this case] unique is that this is the first time anyone has taken on the computer industry." For the sake of men's health and to decry the disposability of men working at dangerous jobs, be it in a coal mine or a "clean room" with toxic chemicals, I hope this suit succeeds and makes a statement (and they don't just take a settlement out of court).
