Huntington Beach Oil Spill Lawsuit
Huntington Beach Oil Spill—On October 2nd, a 126,000-gallon oil spill closed down Huntington Beach, California and all of its upcoming activities, devastating local homeowners and businesses. Growing evidence suggests Amplify Energy, a Texas-operated natural gas and oil company, is responsible for the leaked pipeline. (Amplify’s subsidiary, Beta Offshore, is allegedly blamed.)

Milberg leads the first proposed federal class action against Amplify, representing DJ Peter Moses Gutierrez Jr., a California disk jockey whose business relies on weddings and special events hosted at Huntington Beach. With Huntington Beach’s Mayor Kim Carr suggesting the beach might be closed for months, Gutierrez’s entire livelihood is at stake.
“The corporations that run oil rigs and pipelines assume the risk of oil spills when they undertake the responsibility required to run those entities,” Milberg attorneys state in their formal complaint. “When that responsibility is breached by the defendants, as here, the consequences can be catastrophic.”

Amplify Energy’s history and new role in the Huntington Beach Oil Spill lawsuit
Amplify Energy was founded on the principle of not only creating, but distributing natural, dependable oil to several U.S. states—notably Southern California. Their company culture also promises to commit to the safe production and operation of gas, guaranteeing a clean, healthy environment.
This Texas-based oil company also claims to value honesty and integrity, reminding stakeholders to trust not only their mission, but their purpose. However, after Milberg’s research traced the pipeline leaking to Amplify’s own Beta Offshore, the company claims to have notified the Coast Guard of the oil spill only four minutes after the leak began. Yet, marine biologists and ecologists have already discovered the oil spill’s toxic, lasting effects on animals, the environment, and the air, threatening our physical health.

Who qualifies for a Huntington Beach Oil Spill lawsuit?
The off-shore oil spill in California is a second wave of massive pollution U.S. waters have recently seen, with Hurricane Ida destroying the Gulf Coast last month. The damage included almost 350 individual oil spills causing the destruction of land. As California’s damage continues to rise, scientists, business owners, and homeowners prepare for the catastrophic effects to nature, the climate, and their financial stability.
Those most impacted (from a financial standpoint) include:
- commercial fishers, as a detonated ecosystem forces their careers into extinction.
- tourism business owners who depend on Huntington Beach’s annual 11-million visitors.
- homeowners whose diminishing property values threaten their personal economics.
- oil rig workers, whose jobs might not only be sidelined, but cut all together to cushion the company’s financial losses.
