Though only two residents were listed as plaintiffs, the complaint says it's on behalf of about 200 residents of Dundalk, Turner Station, Edgemere and other nearby communities. It also seeks to be treated as a class action for all nearby residents.
The legal action comes days after an industrial liquidation firm won the bidding for the century-old steel-making complex. The mill's current owner, RG Steel, had filed for bankruptcy in May and the court must approve the sale. (The Baltimore Sun, 8/9/2012)
