HONOLULU — A trial for a mass environmental injury case begins in Hawaii on Monday, more than two years after a U.S. military fuel tank facility under ground poisoned thousands of people when it leaked jet fuel into Pearl Harbor's drinking water.

Instead of a jury, a judge in U.S. District Court in Honolulu will hear about a lawsuit against the United States by 17 "bellwether" plaintiffs: a cross-selection of relatives of military members representing more than 7,500 others, including service members, in three federal lawsuits.
