Texas Brine Sued By Its Insurer Over Louisiana Sinkhole
One of the insurance companies for Texas Brine Company has now filed a lawsuit against the company alleging they have documents proving the company ignored warnings of potential trouble at the Assumption Parish salt dome cavern that is now the site of a more than 25 acre sinkhole.
Liberty Insurance Underwriters contends in their federal lawsuit that some staff of Texas Brine and others warned for years that there could be disaster at the site. Information in the lawsuit says the insurer has company memos, email and reports to back up their claims.
Texas Brine disputes many of the allegations made in the lawsuit, and they contend that Liberty Insurance Underwriters has inappropriately used confidential information.
