Porter Ranch Gas Leak Case On the Brink of Trial

FirstĀ  trial on behalf of 36,000+ plaintiffs

The first bellwether trial on behalf of 36,000+ plaintiffs living in the Porter Ranch area is set to go to trial this Fall. The trial will determine whether SoCalGas and its parent company, Sempra Energy, are liable for punitive damages in their shoddy maintenance and haphazard handling of the SS-25 well blowout that occurred in October 2015. Kiesel Law has been at the center of the effort to get to the bottom of the cause of the blowout , its effects on the health of the residents, and the effects on the values of nearby properties.
