Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is suing one of the companies piling up huge mounds of refinery waste on Chicago's Southeast Side, adding new legal pressure to stop black clouds of dust from blowing into surrounding neighborhoods.

In a complaint filed Monday in Cook County Circuit Court, Madigan accused KCBX Terminals of repeatedly violating state law by allowing lung-damaging particulate matter to swirl off piles of petroleum coke and coal along the Calumet River.
