Judge Dismisses Claims Against Pipeline Owner’s Parent Company

Mealey's (October 21, 2015, 11:50 AM EDT) -- BALTIMORE — A federal judge in Maryland on Oct. 20 dismissed Chevron U.S.A. Inc.’s claims against the parent company of a pipeline owner after finding that it was not a party to the purchase of sales and asset agreement and trimmed some of the claims asserted against the defendant company because it failed to state claims under the Oil Pollution Act (OPA) (Chevron U.S.A. Inc. v. Apex Oil Company Inc., et al., No. JFM-15-00341, D. Md.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 142170).
