A story published by the Associated Press on Jan. 8, 2011, reports incoming Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange intends to make compensation for the state’s victims of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico a top priority. According to the story by reporter Bob Johnson, Strange says he will “hold nothing back” to make sure the state and its citizens are compensated for their losses.

Businesses and individuals suffered economic and environmental damages as a result of the April 20, 2010 explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling platform. The rig exploded off the coast of Louisiana, killing 11 workers. It subsequently sank and set off a massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. The rig was owned by Transocean and operated by BP. It also used Halliburton equipment.

Attorney General Troy King filed a lawsuit against BP, sparking a battle with Gov. Bob Riley, who wanted the state to rely on the official oil spill compensation claims process. Beasley Allen Law Firm is representing the State of Alabama in the filed lawsuit.
