Residents near Citgo refinery await resolution in case that could set legal precedent for environmental violations

Five years after a jury convicted the energy company Citgo of environmental violations, residents who lived near the problematic refinery are still waiting for restitution. While the felony charges were seen as a victory, now a judge is trying to determine who is a victim when an oil company is convicted of contaminating a neighborhood or if there are any victims at all. The case could forge new legal precedent. From Corpus Christi, Texas, FSRN’s Andrew Oxford reports.
