TOWN OF JACKSON, WI (WTAQ) - More than 90 families in the Town of Jackson have retained two personal injury law firms to file suit on their behalf over a pipeline oil spill.
That group is going to sue the pipeline owner and operation. Notification was given to West Shore Pipe Line Company of Illinois and the operator, Buckeye Partners L.P. of Houston, Friday.
The parties are suing for damages to the residents and their families.
A section of pipe ruptured July 17th in Jackson, releasing almost 55,000 gallons of gasoline in just a few minutes. Though notice was given Friday, no timetable for filing the suit was announced.
