CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (December 17, 2016)The lawsuit filed by Bob Hilliard against Ergon Asphalt & Emulsions, Inc. and Valero has steadily added more and more Corpus Christi businesses who have had to keep their doors locked over the busy Christmas season.
Hilliard states that â€Hundreds of Corpus businesses have contacted me and asked to be included, and the calls have not stopped.
We will continue to amend the lawsuit to add more of the businesses who are suffering financially.â€
â€œThe idea that a company would endanger an entire cityâ€™s future and reputation by poisoning the water supply is remarkable.
We will unwind this ball of conspiracy and follow every thread until the identity of every individual responsible for this catastrophe is exposed and held fully accountable.
This is not shaping up as just a simple mistake by those responsible. The questions are troubling. How long were they poisoning our water without telling the City and its citizens? Did they intentionally cover up the danger? Were people unknowingly exposed to a dangerous chemical and if so, for how long?
I am sure the facts as we uncover them will be reviewed by our new district attorney to determine if crimes were committed.
Many of these businesses will feel the full financial hit of this loss well into next year, assuming they even survive.â€
