Downwinders' court win seen as 'great victory'|
Man planning a suit is glad health damage is recognized

It would be 15 years before Mullen's body was gripped by paralysis that necessitated removal of his diseased thyroid. Three more decades elapsed before Mullen found out the government had purposely released radioactive substances upwind of his childhood home in North Idaho.
Reflecting yesterday on verdicts in a lawsuit against government contractors at Hanford, Mullen savored what he called a long-awaited victory for people downwind from the bomb-making plant that ended World War II.
