Marathon Settles Class-Action Suit

1/10/18 – 5:29 A.M.

Marathon Petroleum settled a federal class-action lawsuit last month. The Detroit News reports the suit stemmed from a 2013 storage tank explosion at the company’s Detroit refinery. Court documents show Marathon agreed to pay the two people who filed the suit $1,000 each. The company is also giving $100 gas cards to 200 other plaintiffs in the case.

The agreement also mandates Marathon rebuild an above-ground storage tank for $1.4 million and modify another tank for $650,000.

The settlement is not related to a different federal class-action lawsuit related to air pollution from the Detroit refinery.
