In a 2012 decision by the Italian Supreme Court it ruled that the plaintiff’s brain tumor was caused by a cell phone, and also concluded that experts with ICNIRP affiliations “lacked credibility and authority, and as such, were essentially outside the scientific community.”
The company being sued appealed the original 2012 court decision and it was rejected by the Italian Court of Appeal in 2020 with further costs awarded to the worker with cancer. The Court made even stronger findings against the scientific credibility of ICNIRP and its members.
“it is believed that, in this specific case in question, with a criterion of high logical probability, an etiological link can be assumed between the prolonged and conspicuous occupational exposure to radiofrequencies emitted by cell phones and the disease reported by the expert to INAIL (neurinoma of the right eighth cranial nerve)”
