Obtained Summary Judgment for Kinder Morgan

Attorneys Orlando R. Richmond, Sr., Michael E. McWilliams, and Mark A. Dreher recently obtained summary judgment on behalf of Kinder Morgan in a fuel gas explosion case pending in the Circuit Court of Marshall County, Mississippi. The case was originally filed in 2008 against multiple defendants, including Kinder Morgan’s predecessor in interest. Following a complex procedural course across both state and federal courts, with wide-ranging discovery, Kinder Morgan demonstrated to the Court’s satisfaction both the material distinctions among different pipeline entities in the natural gas industry, and the plaintiffs’ inability to support a host of claims against Kinder Morgan under either federal or state law theories.
