Louisiana files suit against Transocean

Posted on September 16th, 2010 No Comments

The state of Louisiana has filed suit against Transocean Ltd claiming that they should be liable for damages from the Gulf oil spill.

Transocean has said that they are liable for the oil that leaked from their rig, but not the oil that leaked from the well for almost three months after the explosion.

The state of Louisiana is claiming that the company violated environmental laws that are set by the state and federally. Transocean denies this liability, but if the judge goes with the state of Louisiana on this, the company will face much stricter punishment.
