Attorneys and co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Attorney Martin G. Malsch, a partner with Egan, Fitzpatrick, Malsch & Lawrence, PLLC and Geoffrey H. Fettus, a senior project attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC’s) nuclear program, to discuss the aftermath of the nuclear crisis in Japan and the safety of nuclear plants here in the States. Marty and Geoff question if American plants are safe, who would be held legally responsible in case of a nuclear accident in America and how this recent disaster has affected the environment. Later in the program, Bob and Craig visit the great debate over the iPhone v. Android.
