(EVANSVILLE) - A federal judge has set a trial date for a lawsuit by 16 Indiana National Guard soldiers who claim they were exposed to a toxic chemical in Iraq.

The trial is now set to begin May 3rd, 2010, in US district court in Evansville. Soldiers from the 1st battalion, 152nd infantry filed a federal lawsuit in December against defense contractor KBR, Incorporated, saying its employees knowingly allowed them to be exposed to sodium dichromate.

The group was reportedly exposed to the carcinogen while guarding a water plant in Iraq in 2003.
