Barbara Morgan has filed a petition to perpetuate the testimony of John Morgan, who may have been exposed to benzene while working for Mobil Oil.

The petition was filed Dec. 6 in Jefferson County District Court.

According to the petition, Morgan was diagnosed with a serious blood disorder that is expected to prove fatal.

“Mr. Morgan’s serious condition was a result of exposure to benzene and benzene-containing substances during his employment with Mobil Oil Corporation,” the petition states.

The petition seeks Morgan’s employment and exposure history. A wrongful death suit is expected to be initiated.

Provost Umphrey attorney D’Juana Parks of Beaumont represents the petitioners.

Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. E193-679
