"Disgruntled" BP Workers Sue
According to the lawsuit, BP claimed that there was no evidence of any leak and “even suggested to the press that the entire incident may be a hoax by ‘disgruntled workers.’”
Six people are listed as plaintiffs against BP in the case; however, “many more workers at the plant are experiencing the same issues as are being experienced by plaintiffs, but at this time have chosen not to initiate suit, in fear of retaliation by their employers,” it is stated in the lawsuit.
BP spokesman Daren Beaudo said the company does not comment on pending litigation and the attorney representing the workers, Anthony Buzbee, did not return phone calls this week requesting comment.
