Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin on Nov. 3 filed a lawsuit against Speedway LLC over a gasoline leak at one of the company's gas stations in Westmont that resulted in an explosion Oct. 20 at a condominium complex in Willowbrook and several additional explosions in the nearby community.
Madigan and Berlin filed the complaint and motion for immediate and preliminary injunction in DuPage County Circuit Court against Speedway, which operates a Speedway gas station at 6241 S. Cass Ave. in Westmont, according to a news release from the Attorney General's Office.
The two are asking the court to require that Speedway remain closed, perform air monitoring at any affected homes in and around the sanitary sewer system, and investigate and address any contamination from the gasoline release, the release stated.
