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."
