So So So,
when you are soooooo educated in the US-Law you should know
that they sued Tepco-USA because there is no one here in Japan
who want/ will to listen to a US Court Decision, what they decide
is not legally binding here in Japan, they try to sue the legal Body
of the US Tepco!
The Case was dismissed because of Stupidity:
Garner originally submitted the case a year ago. A federal judge in Southern California granted the company’s Nov. 26 motion to dismiss the case, but Garner and the sailors will have another chance, he told Navy Times.
Garner agreed to drop some of the allegations in the lawsuit, including a conspiracy charge, and said the judge would reconsider the case in the new year.

@Wishes, find the link: 0.0004 Seconds, Domo for Google& Fliends
Their Lawyer is just wrong,
with such a stupid Claim they cant win a Lawsuit in the US!
Also Tepco never said everything is fine or there is no Melt-Down,
they just don't use the Word because they had no confirmation.
Everyone here in Japan knew that the Cores are molten!
As i wrote already the Ship is a nuclear Powered Warship,
equipped to work and fight in a nuclear Apocalypse and they
don't need "Information" from Tepco because they have much better
Detecters on Board!
According to the Navy Files none of the Soldiers of Operation Tomodachi
got more than ca. 5 mRem Air Dosage.
I hope this People who suffer find medical help asap
but it look a bit strange!

I just got the answer:
TEPCO was served with the lawsuit in Washington.
If there is anything else I can help you with please let me know.
And now Bow.
20 Years Jura, Rofl!
There is absolutely no basis to think TEPCO should (or even could) be sued in the US just like was already said - with corporations their "head office" is where they are "served" with any law suits - their "head office" is in Japan! Read your own post! Having an 'office' in another country does not make that office culpable. The incident happened from Japan, the company's head office is in Japan, the company is now controlled by the Japan government. The US sailors could try and sue the US for putting them in harm's way - but they cannot sue the US for the 'harm' because the harm is Japan's responsibility even though they don't admit to anything unless caught lying.
