ABSTRACT
The article deals with the efforts of Eva Rowe, daughter of James and Linda Rowe, who were killed in the explosion at the Texas City BP plant, to fight against the company. Eva Rowe refused to settle her case until November of last year. During a deposition, she looked straight into the eyes of BP's corporate counsel and asked him how he managed to sleep at night. She had pushed for passage of Remember the 15, a bill designed to increase protections for workers at petrochemical plants.
