Nine people have sued Chevron Corp. over the refinery fire in California that sent thousands to hospitals with respiratory issues and contributed to higher gasoline prices on the West Coast. The lawsuit claims Chevron was grossly negligent in its handling of refinery maintenance as well as emergency response to the blaze in Richmond, which is near San Francisco. The suit was filed last month in state court. More Plaintiffs will most likely join the lawsuit. In fact, a class-action lawsuit is likely to be filed against Chevron.
