Judge Says It Will Take Weeks to Assess Skunk Works Suit

May 27, 2000

BURBANK — A judge said Friday that it will take him two to three weeks to decide how to proceed with a lawsuit filed by about 2,500 Burbank residents who say they were sickened by chemical emissions from Lockheed Martin's Skunks Works.

Attorneys met privately with Burbank Superior Court Judge Carl J. West to debate how the case should move forward. Lockheed Martin claims the suits are baseless and should be dismissed.

Earlier this month, West threw out the claims of the first 140 plaintiffs, saying they have not adequately proved that Lockheed Martin had caused their ailments.

West set another meeting with the attorneys for next month.
