On Aug. 2, Judge Thomas Rice in U.S. District Court in Spokane ruled on a preliminary injunction in a case regarding worker protection at the Hanford Site. The voluntary restraints proposed by Washington River Protection Solutions were accepted by the court, as written in the official court order issued this week: “B. In consideration for extended time to respond to the Motions for Preliminary Injunction (ECF Nos. 48, 74), Defendants have proposed the imposition of the following voluntary restraints. The Court accepts Defendants’ offer.”
The following two articles offer perspective on the ruling. One is from KING-TV in Seattle, and the other was published in the Tri-City Herald newspaper.
