Today’s petition of the day is:

Title: Cook v. Rockwell International Corp.

Docket: 10-1377

Issue: (1) Whether state substantive law controls the standard of compensable harm in suits under the Price-Anderson Act, or whether the Act instead imposes a federal standard; and (2) whether, if a federal standard applies, a property owner whose land has been contaminated by radioactive plutonium, resulting in lost property value, must show some “physical injury” to the property beyond the contamination itself in order to recover for “damage to property.”
