    An incredible sight last evening -- A Fireball Meteor streaked across the night sky! Just after 8 PM the USGS confirmed that a Fireball Meteor entered the earth's atmosphere.  This created a tremendous flash of light in the night sky, similar to that of what a bright lightning flash would look like.

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A lawsuit filed by 22 plaintiffs against Whirlpool Corporation in connection to the eastern Sandusky County cancer cluster has been dismissed from federal court.

John Murray, an attorney from Sandusky representing some of the plaintiffs tells us attorneys from both sides have been working on the dismissal for a few weeks.

Murray would not say why the suit was dismissed, but said the dismissal is not related to Whirlpool's release of study claiming a Green Springs park is not responsible for the cluster.

The suit could be refilled at a later date.

Whirlpool released the below statement to its employees in a newsletter:

Whirlpool asked a federal court in Toledo this past summer to dismiss the two environmental lawsuits related to our operations in Clyde because the plaintiff attorneys' claims are not based on science and are legally inadequate. We are pleased to report that the plaintiffs in one of these cases, known as the Lagrou case, asked the court to voluntarily dismiss their lawsuit yesterday, November 5, 2013. Additionally, the lawyers from the Murray & Murray law firm in Sandusky, who represent some of the plaintiffs, have told Whirlpool that they have decided to withdraw from the case. It is possible that the complaint could be re-filed in the future by the other plaintiff attorney firm involved in the case.

In the other case, which was filed by the Utah law firm of Desnup, King & Olsen and is known as the Brown case, Whirlpool's motion to dismiss is still pending. We remain committed to defending ourselves against unfounded allegations made by plaintiff attorneys, and will keep you informed of further developments in these cases.
