Earlier this year, the Multi-District Litigation Panel ordered all TPC cases to be coordinated for pre-trial discovery before the Honorable Courtney Arkeen of the 128th Judicial District of Orange County, Texas.
Judge Arkeen conducted a hearing on December 7, 2020. Judge Arkeen appointed Special Master Dean Brinkley to serve as a liaison with the Court to oversee and facilitate settlement discussions between the parties. We are in the process of providing Mr. Brinkley with information about claims against TPC. Once Mr. Brinkley has received the requested information from all Plaintiffs, he will advise of next steps. We will keep clients updated on this process.
We have continued to investigate potential claims against other companies, contractors, and/or manufacturers whose products or conduct may have played a role in the TPC plant explosion. To that end, we have secured over 10,000 documents from one company, we have a served a subpoena for documents on another company, and we have identified a third company that we will be serving a subpoena for documents soon.
The next status hearing will be conducted on January 11, 2020. The purpose of the conference is the receive updates on the progress of the litigation, resolve any pre-trial disputes, and keep the litigation moving toward completion. After the next hearing, we will send clients an update of the litigation. We will also be reaching out from time to time regarding specific information regarding the claims.
