Judge Orders Deposition Videos To Be Removed
A judge has ordered that videos of a deposition by former BP chief Tony Hayward be removed from on-line web sites. U.S. Magistrate Judge Sally Shushan's order says the release of the video may violate a previous court order. The clips were posted on thedaily.com and youtube. Shushan's order does not address publication of text from the deposition. In the deposition Hayward fought off accusations that he sought to prop up the company's falling share price through his subordinates' daily briefings on the Gulf oil spill, and that the firm failed to keep its promise to share its data on how much crude was spewing into the water.
