|Two Braxton County lawsuits have been filed.|
A Braxton woman has filed suit against CSX Corporation, alleging her husband died from cancer after he was exposed to the carcinogen creosote throughout his career while working for the railroad.
Betty Jo Davis claims her husband, Victor C. Davis, died in 2007 after fighting a battle against thymic cancer, which the suit claims he developed after working as a machine operator and trackman from 1975 until 2006.
In a two-count complaint, Betty Jo Davis is seeking an unspecified judgment, plus court costs, interest and other relief the court deems just.
A Pennsylvania firm has filed a suit claiming a Braxton County company owes them money.
The Hite Company filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against Steorts Electric, Steorts Development Company, Rodney Earl Steorts II and Judy Steorts.
