Benzene Case Links
Approximately 40,000 lawsuits were filed against British Petroleum (BP) for the Benzene release that occurred at its Texas City Refinery in April/May 2010. Two trials have been held and both juries found that BP acted negligently in releasing Benzene during this period.
Until recently, all of these cases were consolidated in one of the District Courts in Galveston County (known as the Multi-District Litigation Court). However, the cases are now being equally distributed between the four District Courts in Galveston County with the first set of trials to begin in early 2016. Trials will be set according to the date of filing with the earliest filed cases set for trial first.
