Weirton residents file lawsuit over handling of Weirton Steel BOP building


90 people living in the Weirton area have filed a lawsuit against Frontier Industrial Corporation, the City of Weirton, and others, due to the handling of the Weirton Steel BOP Building back in March.

These people say the cloud from the demolition caused health issues.

The lawsuit claims that an independent chemist ran tests on the dust left behind from the blast– and found that it contained hazardous materials.

The lawsuit also alleges that the city of Weirton knew this was a possibility due to the outcome of previous demolitions.
