A lawsuit stemming from a Wisconsin gasoline pipeline failure now includes 150 affected families, according to a law firm handling the case.
Habush Habush & Rottier is representing families in the suburban Milwaukee community of Jackson, where gasoline spilled after the July 17 pipeline failure.
The Chicago-to-Green Bay pipeline was out of service for four days, disrupting gasoline supplies to Northeastern Wisconsin and temporarily sending prices higher.
Homeowners near the spill site are suing pipeline owner West Shore Pipe Line Co. and operator Buckeye Partners L.P. for economic and emotional damages. The suit is pending in Washington County Circuit Court north of Milwaukee.
