Partner John Wittenborn was quoted in The New Yorker magazine in an article about orphan radioactive sources.
Mr. Wittenborn discussed that since 1982 there have been as many as thirty-five accidents in the United States in which radioactive
materials dumped illegally or inadvertently in the country's scrap-metal piles accidentally contaminated steel plants and workers.
According to Mr. Wittenborn, costs can run as high as twenty-four million dollars per event.
