McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP has filed a class action lawsuit against Southern California Gas Company
On November 23, 2015, McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP and The Kick Law Firm, APC, filed a class action lawsuit against Southern California Gas Company, and Sempre Energy, for an ongoing uncontrolled natural gas leak at the defendants’ Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility near Porter Ranch. Approximately, 25,000 homes in Porter Ranch are near this leak, which is releasing gases, chemicals, and noxious odors into this heavily populated neighborhood. Even though this natural gas leak was first reported to governmental regulatory authorities on October 23, 2015, all efforts to correct the gas leak have failed, and the leak continues unabated. The complaint is seeking actual, general, special, incidental, statutory, compensatory, and consequential damages, as well as is seeking emergency release of health information about the leak.
Both Richard McCune and David Wright will be speaking at the HarrisMartin’s Porter Ranch Gas Leak Litigation Conference on Tuesday, January 19. They will cover the litigation against SoCal Gas as well as the impact of the leak on the community.
