Gulf Oil Spill
Erin continues to work with Weitz & Luxenberg P.C on the Gulf Oil Spill.
Weitz & Luxenberg, along with a number of other law firms, filed lawsuits in response to the BP oil spill. The complaints (Case Numbers 3:10-cv-00137-MCR-EMT and 2:10-cv-01229-KDE-SS], which were filed against BP, Halliburton, Cameron and other parties, seek to recover damages suffered by clients as a result of the Gulf oil spill. The lawsuits allege, in part, that Defendants knew of the dangers associated with deep-water drilling and failed to take appropriate measures to prevent damages to our clients and the environment in which they live and work.
The spill, precipitated by a BP offshore oil rig, Deepwater Horizon, which exploded on Tuesday, April 20, 2010, left 11 workers dead and had and continues to have devastating impacts on both the community and environment.
