Submission + - Former AMD employee sues for birth defects

An anonymous reader writes: A former employee has sued AMD for allegedly exposing her to chemicals that caused severe birth defects in her son. Maria Ruiz and her now 16-year-old son Ryan, both of Austin, filed the suit against AMD, claiming that her exposure to glycol ethers and acetates in the company's Fab 14 manufacturing plant caused her son to be born with a brain injury, a missing right arm below his elbow and cognitive deficits. They are suing for an unspecified amount of money.
