From The Voice of Russia Radio: "BP Deepwater Trial Begins" by Victoria Mashkova
WASHINGTON, Feb 25, 2013 09:10 Moscow Time: BP's trial for the Deepwater Horizon explosion begins in New Orleans today.
Voice of Russia's Victoria Mashkova talks with David A. Logan, the Dean of Roger Williams University School of Law:
Logan calls the Deepwater trial "one of the most complicated cases that the United States courts have ever seen." There are actions being brought against BP by people whose businesses have been ruined, individual states, and the United States government. However, he doesn't expect that BP will have to pay the maximum penalty, which could be upwards of $90 billion.
