Colorado Man Seeks $5 Million From BP For Firing

May 4, 2012

A Durango, Colo. man is suing BP claiming he was fired for reporting safety violations by a BP contractor.

Larry Holland, an employee of Grand Junction-based Pure Automation Inc., is seeking $5 million.

BP America told the Durango Herald the company does not believe the accusations.

Holland says company officials tried to get him to retract a report after he told them safety violations last year could have caused a gas explosion that could have killed seven people in a building that had a gas leak.
