The Washington state Court of Appeals has upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit brought by former Hanford worker Walter Tamosaitis regarding his lay-off.

The appeals court yesterday ruled that a Benton County judge was correct to dismiss the case because Tamosaitis failed to show he had lost wages or other money as a result of being removed from work on the Hanford vitrification plant.

The lawsuit is against Hanford contractor Bechtel National.
