Jury Awards $363M In First Sterigenics Ethylene Oxide Trial

Today, the first jury verdict related to Sterigenics came forth in Cook County. The plaintiff, Ms. Sue Kamuda, is one of many local residents who have filed suit against Sterigenics due to the harmful effects of ethylene oxide they suffered after the chemical was dispersed into ours and the larger regional community. Sterigenics was found liable for Ms. Kamuda’s health issues, and Ms. Kamuda was awarded over $300 million in damages. The Village will continue to follow these trials and update the community in the future.
