Lockheed Martin Is Getting Sued for Creating an Environmental Nightmare in Florida

The very first, a consolidated individual injury lawsuit, was submitted on behalf of 13 employees at the Golf Channels Orlando complex that sits just across a busy road from Lockheed Martins facilities where the company carries out tests on bombs, rockets, and other weapons. “Instead of thoroughly managing these toxic substances from the minute they arrived at the center, and guaranteeing they were effectively utilized, saved, and disposed of, Lockheed Martin stored toxic substances in leaking storage tanks, collected and transported waste materials in dripping underground piping systems, and dumped thousands of tons of highly toxic waste sludges into trenches dug throughout the Orlando Facility. Just a couple of weeks back, former nuclear employees and their households submitted a fit accusing U.S. Department of Energy specialists– including Lockheed Martin– of “poisoning employees and the people, land, air and water for miles” around a now-shuttered plant in southern Ohio.
