Two separate lawsuits were filed last month on behalf of the State of Alabama by Attorney General Troy King against BP and several other Defendants. The suits, filed in federal court, seek damages and injunctive relief against those companies responsible for the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Both cases will be transferred to the MDL judge in New Orleans. Our firm has been asked to represent the state, along with the firm of Prince Glover from Tuscaloosa. Our goal in these cases is to hold all Defendants fully responsible for the massive losses and damages suffered by the State of Alabama and its citizens.
Both candidates for governor are backing the Attorney General’s filing of the state’s lawsuit. Democratic nominee Ron Sparks says people were tired of waiting for someone to hold BP accountable and he commended the Republican Attorney General for filing the suit. Republican nominee Robert Bentley believes BP and the federal government failed Alabama citizens. He says it’s the right of the Attorney General to file suit against BP. It’s most significant that the two men support the lawsuit since one of them will inherit the many problems caused by BP and the other Defendants. The effects of this disaster won’t be fully known for a long time and our state won’t get over this disaster any time soon. It will be our job to make sure the State receives full compensation for its losses.
