IDAHO FALLS (AP/KTVB) — Another lawsuit has been filed involving a 2011 accident at an eastern Idaho nuclear facility that exposed 16 workers to plutonium.

The Post Register reports that Jodi Stanton, the wife of an exposed worker, filed the lawsuit in federal court Tuesday.

She contends their home might have been contaminated because the company withheld information or offered false information.

The lawsuit targets Battelle Energy Alliance, the company contracted by the government to operate Idaho National Laboratory. It seeks an undisclosed amount in damages.

Ralph Stanton and Brian Simmons in September 2013 sued the U.S. Department of Energy under the Freedom of Information Act, claiming they were wrongly denied documentation about an accident in which they were exposed to plutonium.

Idaho National Laboratory officials declined to comment on the latest lawsuit.
