Some lawsuits from Conn. power plant blast settled
Mediation settles some lawsuits from Conn. power plant explosion; others remain in talks
By The Associated Press

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) ' Attorneys say lawsuits brought by the families of five of six workers killed in a Connecticut power plant explosion last year have been settled.

The Hartford Courant reports ( ) that the undisclosed settlement terms were reached after mediation last week.

Dozens were also injured when the Kleen Energy plant exploded in Middletown during a pipe-cleaning procedure in February 2010.

An attorney for one of the workers who died says the settlements were large enough to recognize "that these lives were lost in a foolish and negligent way."

An attorney for O&G Industries, one of the largest defendants, calls the settlements fair.

The lawsuit filed by the family of the sixth worker who died was not part of the settlement. Discussions are also continuing on several lawsuits filed by injured workers.
