STATEMENT FROM ATTORNEY GENERAL LUTHER STRANGE REGARDING BP CRIMINAL CASE

(MONTGOMERY)—“Today's announcement that BP has agreed to plead guilty to 14 criminal charges under Federal law moves us one step closer to getting justice for the citizens of Alabama and the entire Gulf Coast. BP's criminal acts levied economic and environmental damages of historic proportions upon Alabama, and these damages are not covered under today's agreement. Accordingly, in my role as the States' Coordinating Counsel, I will continue devoting my time to holding BP and the other responsible parties accountable for their acts, and I look forward to presenting Alabama's case that BP was grossly negligent when we have our day in court.”
