BEAUMONT – The Brent Coon & Associates law firm recently filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of those who live or work near the TPC Group Plant in Port Neches.

The suit, styled Alberta Meaux et al. v. TPC Group, was filed Dec. 27 in Jefferson County District Court.

An explosion and fire occurred at the plant, which produces butadiene, on Nov. 27, causing significant damage to the surrounding area and leading to an evacuation order.

“The evacuation order … was not lifted until Nov. 29, forcing people to be out of their homes on Thanksgiving,” the suit states.

The suit asserts that the plaintiffs who live or work near the TPC facility suffered the following harms:

- Damage to property;

- Loss of use of their homes;

- Diminished value of their homes;

- Costs associated with evacuation, relocation and return to their homes;

- Loss of wages;

- Loss of revenues;

- Person injury; and

- Mental anguish.

The suit further accuses TPC of gross negligence.

Judge Mitch Templeton, 172nd District Court, has been assigned to the case.

Case No. E-205060
