Defendant responds to HAZMAT lawsuit
AMARILLO, Texas (KVII) —
A defendant in a lawsuit regarding a HAZMAT incident, that left four children dead and others injured, responded to the claims on Wednesday.
Isidro Ulloa has entered a denial in his answer to the lawsuit.
Peter Balderas and Martha Balderas filed the lawsuit on behalf of themselves and their injured and deceased minor children, along with their adult daughters Cassandra Balderas and Jacqueline Balderas in October.
According to the original petition, “The lawsuit arises from an incident which occurred on or about January 2, 2017...Plaintiff was provided Weevil-Cide pellets contained in a canister by Isidro Ulloa...the pellets emitted phosphine gas that killed four of their eight children.”
Ulloa is currently representing himself.
United Phosphorus, LTD., UPL Corporation Limited, and United Phosphorus, Inc., are also defendants in the case and have yet to file a response with the court.
