Toshiba hit with class action over scrapped US nuclear project

South Carolina residents footing the bill want the company to pay up

| Japan

TOKYO -- A group of U.S. residents has launched a class-action lawsuit against Toshiba over the decision to halt work on a pair of reactors being built by its bankrupt American nuclear unit, seeking unspecified damages.

Two residents of South Carolina, home to the V.C. Summer nuclear plant, have taken the Japanese electronics conglomerate to court on behalf of customers purchasing power from South Carolina Electric & Gas, whose parent Scana manages the plant. Toshiba was served with the complaint Tuesday.
