Widow of Man Killed in North Dakota Oil Patch Files Lawsuit

March 30, 2012

The widow of a man who was killed while working on an oil rig in western North Dakota has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court.

Kathryne Due says Houston-based Neighbors Drilling USA did not ensure safe conditions and is responsible for the April 2010 death of her husband, Larry Due.

The lawsuit says Larry Due was installing floor plates on the rig floor when he was crushed by a bridle line and equalizer.

Kathryne Due is seeking unspecified damages.

A spokeswoman for Neighbors Drilling did not return a phone message left by The Associated Press.
