BP Grossly Negligent in 2010 Big Oozy Disaster
BP’s conduct in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill was “grossly negligent,” U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier ruled this morning (9.4). Barbier also ruled that Transocean and Halliburton were each “negligent.” The decision assigned 67% of responsibility for the incident to BP, 30% to Transocean, and 3% to Halliburton.
Blowout Preventer Was Activated, Says BP Oil Disaster Report
More than four years after the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, oil is still being collected and the court case drags on. On Thursday, investigators also revealed they're still learning more about what happened at the bottom of the Gulf on April 20, 2010. Turns out, the much-discussed Blowout Preventer worked. But instead of shutting off the flow of oil, it directly caused the unmitigated flow of crude into the Gulf. BP disputed the new findings.
BP Eyes Supreme Court for Oil Disaster Claims
They've taken out full-page ads in the New York Times and aired their case on 60 Minutes. Now, BP is taking their Big Oozy claim appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Big Oozy's Pelican Death Toll Questioned
by Bob Marshall, The Lens
Almost from the start wildlife advocates described the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as a war on the Gulf ecosystem. Few quibbled with that analogy as a record 210 million gallons spewed into the Gulf just 50 miles from one of the world’s most productive coastal estuaries.
Gulf Wildlife Still Feeling Oily Impacts, Report Says
Deepwater Horizon oil may be buried these days, but the the Big Oozy's potential effects on wildlife are beginning to materialize on the surface. According to a new report released to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the Gulf oil disaster, the Macondo well's oil could be making its way up the marine life food chain.
Barrier Island Restoration Project Gets Go-Ahead
The Big Oozy brought oil to the Louisiana coast, but it's also bringing money for coastal restoration. Starting this summer, the latest evidence is expected to be on view in Lafourche Parish. On Thursday, The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation signed off on a $144.5 million restoration project in the Caminada Headland.
Study: Big Oozy Caused Heart Problems in Tuna
The latest scientific study about the effects of the Big Oozy goes right to the heart. Crude oil that flowed from the Deepwater Horizon in 2010 is causing "severe defects" in the developing hearts of two varieities of large, predatory tuna, according to the paper, which was released this week by a team of scientists from NOAA and other agencies.
BP Sues Lawyer Over 'Phantom' Deckhands
BP has taken its campaign against paying Big Oozy settlement claims to the airwaves and Emeril. Now, the oil giant is going straight for the lawyers. The British company sued Mikal Watts Tuesday, aruging that the Texas attorney handled claims for 40,000 deckhands that did not exist.
BP Engineer on Trial for Deleting Texts
On Monday morning, Kurt Mix became the first person to go on trial for the Big Oozy. Those who may not remember Mix's role in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster drama are excused, as he remained largely offscreen in his role as a lowly drilling engineer. But the feds accuse Mix of deleting text messages and voicemails that would have been important to their investigation of the oil disaster.
