Lawsuit Filed Against DuPont over Texas Plant Deaths

 Tuesday, November 18, 2014


A prominent Texas trial lawyer said he filed a lawsuit against DuPont and Co on Monday on behalf of a woman whose mother was one of four people killed in an accident on Saturday at the company’s La Porte, Texas chemical plant.
The lawyer, Brent Coon, also filed a temporary restraining order to preserve evidence at the scene of the accident, which involved a leak of methyl mercaptan, a chemical used to give natural gas its rotten-egg smell and for making insecticides and plastics.
