BP: Please Don't Make Us Go Through This Again
Chris Helman, Forbes
BP is set to go to trial against the federal government next week. The feds say they intend to prove that BP was grossly negligent in causing the Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent spill. BP says gross negligence is a high bar that it intends to keep prosecutors from clearing. The outcome will determine how many more billions the company ends up paying in fines for releasing millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
TAGGED: oil, Gulf of Mexico, Macondo oil spill, BP
