Longtime Richmond resident Michael Johnson fills out paperwork at the temporary office of attorney John Burris after a press conference in Richmond, Calif., on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 2012, to announce a lawsuit on behalf of victims of the Aug. 6 Chevron refinery fire. Johnson suffers from chronic breathing problems and all four of his children suffer from asthma. The lawsuit charges that "Chevron was grossly negligent in handling an accident that, with proper safety measures and a timely response, could have been avoided," according to a statement issued by John Burris.
