Mother claims child died due to BP refinery pollution

Today, the Buzbee Law Firm announced the filing of a lawsuit on behalf of the estate of baby Julius Provost.  The suit claims that excess pollution from BP's refinery in Texas City, Texas, contributed to the infant child's death.

The lawsuit, which seeks $10 billion  in punitive damages, is one of thousands being filed in Texas over excess pollution from the giant Texas City refinery, which this month agreed to pay a $50.6 million fine to the U.S. government for safety lapses related to a 2005 explosion that killed 15 workers.
