Allen, et al. v. Sterling Chemical, Inc., et al. (Circuit Court of Harris County, Texas)
This decade-long litigation involved claims by over two thousand Texas City, Texas residents alleging long-term exposures to chemicals emanating from petrochemical plants owned by our client, a chemical company, as well as other defendant companies. After years of motion practice, the numbers of plaintiffs and release dates at issue were ultimately whittled-down to the point where token settlements became possible.
