NPR's Anthony Brooks reports that a federal court in Boston today will begin hearing a lawsuit against a doctor and hospital that performed experimental radiation treatments during the 40's, 50's and 60's. The federal government, which sponsored the experiments on terminally ill cancer patients, is also a defendant in the suit.
