This Article explores the dynamics and complexity of the electromagnetic field controversy. Presently, there are many unanswered questions with respect to the effects electromagnetic radiation has on people who live or work near power lines. This Article examines the state of domestic and international scientific evidence that exists regarding the risks of electromagnetic radiation. Ultimately, the Article concludes that although the present state of the legal and scientific field is not conducive to electromagnetic field litigation and plaintiffs will face difficulty in receiving settlement awards, the judicial route is not closed off to them.
