BP Settle Personal Injury Suit

British oil and natural gas exploration company British Petroleum (BP) has settled a personal injury lawsuit with a 20-year-old man who allegedly developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma as a result of living near BP's Sugar Creek refinery in Kansas City. Justin Detel was 11 years old when he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He claimed that pollution from the Sugar Creek refinery caused his illness. The terms of the settlement are not open to the public as per Detel's law firm's agreement with BP.
