Alabama: BP Settlements Independent of Alabama Claims

press release
Monday, March 05, 2012

Statement from Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange on BP/Private Plaintiffs Settlement.

 

“The settlement announced last night between BP and private plaintiffs does not impact Alabama’s claims against BP and the other defendants for the damage done to our economy and environment. We are fully prepared to try our case, and we hope that the court sets a new trial date in the near future.  Alabama will continue to work closely with the United States Department of Justice and the other Gulf States to hold BP and the other defendants fully accountable for the disaster in the Gulf."
