Payouts in Colorado nuclear plant settlement could come soon

Posted: Updated:

DENVER (AP) - Checks could start going out soon to people who filed valid claims against the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant in Louisville, Colorado.
  
The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/2xXbP2w ) that barring any delays from court, the first payouts in a $375 million settlement could go out at the end of October.
  
Merrill Davidoff, a Philadelphia lawyer whose firm is administering claims in the 27-year-old legal case against two of Rocky Flats' private-sector operators, says approximately 7,500 households have valid claims.
  
Davidoff said more than $200 million will be paid out to those whose homes lost value after it was determined that plutonium released at Rocky Flats was carried by prevailing winds to a swath of Broomfield, Westminster and Arvada homes that lie directly east of the former plant.
