BP Oil Spill Trial Delayed
The case against oil giant BP will be delayed for at least a week.
A federal judge allowed the delay to allow the two side to continue work on a possible settlement. If no settlement is reached, then judge Carl Barbier will have to preside over a three-phase trial that could take up much of the year.
There’s been no word on the status of those settlement negotations or of what progress has been made.
