Complaint in the Navy / TEPCO Radiation Case

I haven’t seen this online anywhere, so I’m posting the amended complaint filed against Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) by the class of U.S. Navy sailors who suffered radiation exposure after Fukushima. It’s here. Also, here’s the defendant’s response, which seeks dismissal on the basis of international comity, forum non conveniens, the political question doctrine, and various alleged deficiencies in the prima facie case. One question: why no challenge to the extraterritorial application of California tort law to alleged negligence by a Japanese defendant in Japan? I’ll write more on that in a subsequent post.
