Oklahoma’s top court upholds ruling against Houston pipeline company

🕐 1 min read

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Supreme Court has upheld a more than $30 million judgment in favor of a powerline construction company over a 2010 pipeline explosion in Texas.

The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/2dND6te ) reports that Dewey-based C&H Power Line Construction claimed in the lawsuit that the explosion killed employee James Neese, severely burned another employee, destroyed equipment and led to the loss of the business.

In 2013, a jury found two entities of Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners LP negligent in the accident. The jury found that Enterprise employees failed to mark the pipeline after they were notified of the intention to dig in the area.

Enterprise Products Operating LLC and Enterprise Texas Pipeline LLC appealed the ruling.

Oklahoma’s top court on Tuesday upheld the jury verdict.
