Rocky Flats jury verdict - $554 million against Rockwell and Dow

The federal jury in the Rocky Flats class action awarded $ 554 million in compensatory and punitive damages against Rockwell and Dow for negligently contaminating the property of 12,000 plaintiffs with plutonium.  I wonder if Rockwell and Dow have an indemnity agreement with the US.
