On January 12, 1974 an explosion and fire occurred at the Louisville Gas & Electric natural gas compressor station in Muldraugh, Kentucky resulting in two deaths and substantial damage to the equipment and systems that controlled and distributed natural gas from a 3,500,000 cubic feet storage field. The resulting litigation focused primarily on a manufacturer who was in the process of installing a new compressor system. Following a trial in U.S. District Court, the jury returned a verdict in favor of our client, awarding all damages claimed.
