New Florida Oil Spill Lawsuit

New Florida Oil Spill Lawsuit
We have continued to report the allegations of damage to the environment in Florida. While we are involved in the Florida Oil Spill litigation that is pending, there is more coming. A new lawsuit has been filed where BP, Anadarko and Transocean are named as as defendants. This lawsuit was filed by the State of Florida and attempts to hold the Defendants responsible for the environmental harm caused by the oil spill.

According to the Times, "[t]he case Florida filed Wednesday is separate from the suit filed last year by the Attorney General's Office, which deals with economic losses Florida suffered as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Wednesday's filing seeks to hold the named defendants accountable for injuries to the environment the state suffered as a result of the oil spill."
