Recently, Judge Barbier entered an order setting the State of Alabama’s case against BP and its contractors for trial in November of 2015. As anyone that understands litigation knows, a scheduling order with strict deadlines is a very positive development for the State. True to Judge Barbier’s no-nonsense approach, the order maintains an aggressive schedule, with fact and corporate representative depositions to begin in November 2014 and expert discovery concluding in the spring of 2015.
The case seeks to make the State whole for tax revenue losses, increased public service costs, physical property damage and various departmental response and recovery costs associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Our firm represents the Governor of Alabama, and Rhon Jones and Parker Miller are heading up the case on the Governor’s side, along with Jenna Day and Rick Stratton, other lawyers from the firm. We have been working very closely with Attorney General Luther Strange and his staff Corey Maze and Win Sinclair from the Attorney General’s office are assigned to the project and they have done very good work. Frankly, all of the lawyers working together, have done an outstanding job in what will be an extremely important case for the State of Alabama.
