CPM Files Complaint for City of Richmond Against Chevron for Explosion in August 2012

August 2, 2013

The City of Richmond sued Chevron Corporation and Chevron U.S.A. Inc. over the Chevron refinery explosion that occurred in August 2012.  The complaint alleges Chevron placed profits and executive pay over public safety and the August 6, 2012 refinery fire in Richmond is just a continuation of years of neglect, lax oversight, and corporate indifference to necessary safety inspection and repairs that were known to have caused numerous other fires and explosions.  Click below to view the complaint.
