Closing arguments set in Flats case

Closing arguments are to begin today in a lawsuit brought by Rocky Flats workers suffering from a lung ailment called chronic beryllium disease.

The workers are suing Brush Wellman Inc., an Ohio company that supplied the toxic metal beryllium to the former nuclear weapons plants.

Jurors will get the case after 13 days of testimony. They must decide whether Brush is liable for the workers becoming sick because the company covered up information about beryllium's hazards. They also must decide whether the workers filed their lawsuits within the statute of limitations.
