|Tensas Poppodoc civil case continues in Concordia court|
The civil trial pitting Tensas Poppodoc against several oil companies, including Chevron, entered its eighth day today (Wednesday) in Seventh Judicial District Court in Vidalia.
Judge Leo Boothe is presiding.
Lawyers for Tensas Poppodoc, which owns property at Lake St. John, are asking a Concordia Parish jury for $126 million to clean up property which it says was contaminated by Chevron and other oil companies over the past six decades.
Chevron developed the Lake St. John field in the 1940s. The company was known as the California Company at the time.
Tensas Poppodoc, domiciled in Tensas Parish, is owned by Ken Killen Jr. The company owns 364 acres of the Lake St. John oil field in Concordia. The entire field totals some 14,000 acres.
Dozens of lawyers, paralegals, and others in the legal profession are involved in court proceedings.
A 12-member petit jury was seated last week for the trial which is expected to last two weeks. There was speculation at midweek that the proceedings may continue through Saturday.
The plaintiff rested its case on Tuesday after calling six witnesses. The defendants -- Chevron and the other oil companies -- should complete their case by the weekend.
In addition to Chevron, other defendants include Devon Energy Production, McGowan Working Partners, Merit Energy Company, Merit Management Partners, Merit Energy Partners, South Operating & Management Company, Spokane Oil & Gas, Sunset Oil & Gas, Denbury Offshore, Diamond South, LSJ Exploration and Oil & ALELSJ.
