A federal judge was set to begin hearing three weeks of testimony Monday about how much oil made it into the ocean during the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
The trial resumes Monday for the federal litigation spawned by BP’s massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, with a focus on the company’s response to the deadly disaster.
A worker who survived the deadly explosion on the Deepwater Horizon testified Wednesday that a flurry of activity on the drilling rig hindered his ability to monitor BP’s well for signs of trouble before the April 2010 blowout.
Nearly three years after a deadly rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico triggered the nation’s worst offshore oil spill, a federal judge in New Orleans is set to preside over a high-stakes trial for the raft of litigation spawned by the disaster.
