Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange, selected as the lead attorney for all states filing claims against BP, has said many times that his top priority is to ensure that the oil giant remains accountable for its wrongdoing. Luther is absolutely correct that BP’s acknowledgement of responsibility in the spill and its pledge to make victims “whole” again, will make it difficult for the company to back up on its promise. Luther, who is doing a tremendous job as Attorney General, says his office will “hold BP accountable to that promise.”
The federal court in New Orleans will also make sure BP keeps its promise. The litigation to determine the liability for the spill, according to Luther, is “one of the most complex in U.S. history,” and I totally agree with his assessment. But we must never forget that BP is a powerful adversary and one with the financial ability to make all of us work extremely hard to ensure that the oil giant keeps its word. A trial is set for February in federal court in New Orleans. It’s good to see the Attorney General taking such a strong stand in this important litigation. That’s good news for Alabama and the entire Gulf Coast region.
