BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has been told he can go ahead with his investigation of BP, the rig explosion that’s dumping oil into the Gulf of Mexico, and the company’s process for compensating Louisianans affected by the disaster.
A news release yesterday said Judicial District Court Judge Joy C. Lobrano June 10 approved Caldwell’s petition requesting that BP turn over data related to the oil spill claims process and information on the explosion and spill.
The petition also requested that BP provide information on the composition of mud used in the drilling and the failed “top kill” operation, and on the use and effects of chemical dispersants, and all air and water quality data.
BP has 10 days to raise objections. After that, Caldwell can begin his investigation.
