UK calls for fair treatment of BP in appeals court
Posted on Wednesday, September 17th, 2014 at 10:47 am
The government of the United Kingdom suggested to the United States Supreme Court that it review appeals court rulings against London-based oil magnate BP Plc over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill fiasco that resulted in one of the most massive class action cases in America, Reuters reported on September 7.
The British government stated that the manner in which BP is being treated by the American courts is undermining the trust necessary for healthy and fruitful international commerce.
BP’s offshore oil rig Deepwater Horizon, which is located off the coast of Louisiana, exploded on April 20, 2010, causing oil to spew into the Gulf of Mexico. The company, now supported by the U.K., believes that compensation is now unfairly extending to parties who were not affected by this incident.
