The Louisville Courier-Journal investigates the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, a uranium processing plant built during the Cold War. In 1999, workers from the plant filed a class-action lawsuit alleging that they were exposed to harmful radioactive materials. The Courier-Journal obtained memos from plant administrators that shows they knew about possible hazards, but ruled them to be "acceptable risks."
