“It’s saying a lot that these people who’ve put up with so much have finally decided the state is failing us, the EPA is failing us, we’re going to try to do it ourselves through the court system,” Buzbee said in an interview with StateImpact Texas.
The many plaintiffs in this case received triple damages and those same attorneys have won other massive cases.
Some Texans have a low opinion of trial attorneys and it’s because industry spent a lot of money driving those opinions. But trial attorneys are our last best hope when the Big Oil & Gas Mafia is pushing you around. (Ask me how I know.)
Change is gonna come.
