Cleburne (Johnson Co, TX) Family Sues ATMOS Gas over pipe explosion

10 June 2007 at 11:06:41 AM

Background from May. ATMOS had gone back and repaired, not one, but THREE gas leaks.

The Cleburne family whose house exploded May 29 filed a lawsuit Monday in the 413th District Court against Atmos Energy Corp.

Judge William Bosworth also awarded a temporary restraining order Monday against Atmos, which prohibits them from destroying, altering or disposing of physical evidence relevant to the family’s case. The order also directs Atmos to videotape any repairs or inspections of their pipelines. The restraining order remains in effect until a June 15 application hearing for a temporary injunction.

That's a really great idea. Make them videotape the repairs and inspections!

Homeowner David Pawlik, 66, filed the lawsuit individually and as a representative of the other family members. The suit alleges that an accumulation of gas from lines owned and controlled by Atmos leaked into and accumulated in his house, leading to the explosion. The suit also charges Atmos with failure to maintain and inspect the pipelines and failure to warn the family of the leakage and migration of gas.
