The Advocate – Assumption sinkhole lawsuits now total eight filed so far
NAPOLEONVILLE — Lawyers working with environmental activist Erin Brockovich filed a lawsuit seeking damages on behalf of residents and businesses under evacuation orders for more than nine months as a result of the Assumption Parish sinkhole.
Also, Pontchartrain Natural Gas System, K/D/S Promix LLC and Acadian Gas Pipeline System — three pipeline or gas storage subsidiaries of Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners LP — separately have sued for damages over the sinkhole. . . .
. . . The suit tied to Brockovich also accuses Texas Brine and the two other named defendants, Miller Engineers and Associates and Occidental Chemical Corp., of fraud by concealing information about the cavern’s integrity since at least 2010 “in order to escape responsibility for any damages arising therefrom.” . . .
