Families Signing on to Wisconsin Pipeline Spill Suit

October 22, 2012

More than 90 families in the Town of Jackson, Wis. have signed on to a planned lawsuit over a pipeline spill.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported the families have retained two personal injury law firms to represent them in a suit against the pipeline owner and operator.

On Friday, Habush, Habush & Rottier S.C. in Milwaukee and the Law Offices of Peter G. Angelos in Baltimore notified pipeline owner, West Shore Pipe Line Co. of Illinois, and operator, Buckeye Partners L.P. of Houston, of their intent to sue for damages to residents and properties.

No timetable for filing a lawsuit was announced.

A section of 10-inch pipe in West Shore’s Milwaukee-to-Green Bay line ruptured July 17 in Jackson. An estimated 54,600 gallons of gasoline were released within a few minutes.
