Norris Requests His Own Forensics Team


Attorney M. H. "Reese" Norris, representing the wife of a worker who was killed, seeks to have own experts look over evidence in advance of potentially filing a civil suit against companies responsible for the plant’s construction.

Attorneys Robert Reardon and M. H. Reese Norris, representing three workers present at the plant on the day of the blast and the wife of a worker who was killed, are seeking to have their own experts look over evidence in advance of potentially filing a civil suit against companies responsible for the plant’s construction.

The Feb. 7 blast killed six workers and injured at least 26.

New Jersey-based gas explosion expert Dehong Kong, Massachusetts-based fire ignition and origin expert Thomas Klem and famed forensic scientist Henry Lee were on the plant site Friday for four hours and took more than 200 pictures as part of their investigation for Reardon and Norris. Their visit was supervised by a U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration lawyer and an OSHA investigator, Reardon said.
