Original post made on Apr 11, 2012

Stanford University’s Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) expects to restart its accelerators in February after being shut down by the federal Department of Energy (DOE) following an accident that seriously injured a worker last Oct. 11. The federal agency is the main funding source for the science facility located off Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park.

I recently over a few years. Had the undoubtly pleasure of mr. David simon as my co worker. I was his electrical foreman. It is an upmost complete and shamful event that happened to this man. He is one of the trueat greates enduring and compliant persons i have ever met. He was forced to work against all odds and as well as mained. His scars were still in healing process and voice still broken. And yet every day even though difficult to smile thru the horrific skin graphfs. He did and was unmistakenly the light of the day. This man is a hero and an insperation and i was blessed to be able to of worked with such a humble personb who valued life and liberty. Even through pain and fear smiled andbworked to feed his family and keep his dignity amunst the terror. He in all right could if given up could have said to never be seen in public again. To know david simon is to know a true man. A true father. A true believer.

In 2005 David Simon filed a lawsuit against SLAC officials claiming that he was negligently instructed to install a safety switch.

What was the outcome of that lawsuit?

-it has been 7 years since the incident.
