The widow of a deceased refinery worker is suing Texaco and Chevron USA for "maliciously" exposing William English to asbestos.
English's surviving spouse, Gloria English, filed the suit through Provost Umphrey attorney Keith Hyde on April 8 in the Jefferson County District Court.
According to the plaintiff's petition English worked at Texaco's Port Arthur facility. During his employment in the labor and maintenance departments, he used and was exposed to toxic materials including asbestos dust and fibers. "As a result of such exposure, William English, developed an asbestos-related disease for which he died a painful and terrible death on July 8, 2007," the suit said.
