Bullseye Glass neighbors in SE file $1 billion lawsuit
Portland residents living near Bullseye Glass Studio in Southeast have filed a $1 billion class-action lawsuit against the glass company.
The suit was filed Thursday and seeks $153,00 for current and future medical expenses for everyone living in the area where high levels of heavy metals have recently been detected in the air.
The suit also demands $50,000 per person for mental distress. There are about 6,000 people in the neighborhood, so damages alone would total $1.2 billion.
Bullseye Glass began using cadmium in its factory on Wednesday. KATU has reached out to Bullseye for comment, but we haven't heard back from them.
