Dumontier v. Schlumberger Technology Co. (9th Cir. - Sept. 11, 2008)

Defendant carelessly left some cesium-137 lying around, and you were exposed to it. You're freaked out, and would like to sue -- and at least get reimbursed for monitoring for cancer.

Tough luck. At least in the Ninth Circuit.

Sorry about that, Chief.
