While explosive materials continue to be moved and stored at Camp Minden, the lawsuits against Explo Systems Inc are just starting to pile up.
First was a class action suit from the citizens of Doyline, now Explo's insurance company Crum and Forster have filed their action based on the claim they were intentionally kept in the dark.
According to the suit back on August 21, 2012 during Explo's insurance renewal, in response to the question "Do any operations include blasting or utilize or store explosive material?" Explo answered "No."
Crum and Forster are seeking a variety of demands and declarations.
Including that they have no duty to compensate Explo for clean up costs from the explosion and that they have no duty to defend Explo in the class action suit from the citizens of Doyline.
The pages of the lawsuit also shed light on their investigation into the October bunker explosion itself...including that what exploded was 70,000 pounds of smokeless gunpowder and that the powder was purchased from a third-party vendor...which Crum and Forster say Explo never told them about.
The controversy is more than $75,000 and the insurance company is seeking a jury trial.
Meanwhile, there is still no word on how Doyline citizens will receive compensation.
