New Orleans consolidates BP oil spill suits

Posted on August 12th, 2010 No Comments

BP Plc is facing hundreds of suits from New Orleans because Eastern Louisiana is the closest region to the oil spill disaster.

A U.S. District Judge is presiding over 300 lawsuits including wrongful death suits from the families of workers killed in the rig explosion to loss of revenue claims from people who say that the oil spill has cost them money in fishing and tourism industries that their livelihoods depend on.

The judge set the date of Sept. 17 to organize all of the lawsuits in court. The government also wanted New Orleans to consolidate their lawsuits because it is a large city with the most damage done.
