More documents filed over Denka plant health impacts

ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH, LA (WVUE) - Plaintiffs suing over an area plant's emissions filed more documents to make their case.

Judge Martin Feldman  had threatened to throw out the case if he did not get more evidence to justify claims the chloroprene emissions from the Denka Plant in St. John caused health problems.

The EPA has concluded emissions coming from the plant put people who live nearby at the highest risk of developing cancer in the country.
