Six employees of JJ's have filed a lawsuit over their injuries stemming from a February explosion at the Plaza area restaurant.

The explosion was caused by a cable installation project that severed a gas line. It injured the six employees and killed one person.

The lawsuit stipulates that there were errors in the project that led to serious miscommunication, and that the miscommunication ultimately caused the leak.

In addition, the lawsuit alleges that the gas company employees told people it was safe to stay in the restaurant even when it clearly was not.

The suit names Missouri Gas Energy, Heartland Midwest, Time Warner Cable, Missouri One Call System, and USIC Locating Services. There are multiple defendants because the suit claims multiple errors were made on a complex project that involved contractors, private companies, and public utilities.
