Texas Sues BP for Refinery Pollution

Texas’ Attorney General has filed a lawsuit against BP for violating the state’s pollution laws. The civil lawsuit cites 46 releases of pollution at the refinery, including those associated with a 2005 explosion that killed 15 employees and injured 180 others. Unspecified monetary damages are sought for each day each violation occurred, in addition to legal fees for the cost of the lawsuit and civil penalties. BP has already invested over $1 billion in people and processes to decrease pollution at the facility.
