Officials say 54 Paulsboro, N.J. residents have filed a lawsuit against Conrail and CSX for damages from last month's train derailment.

The residents are seeking medical screening for early detection of serious and life-threatening medical conditions.

The demands come from concerns over the leak of vinyl chloride from a ruptured tanker car.

Residents also want compensation for being forced out of their homes and for significant disruption of their daily lives in the community.
