Class Action Suit Against BP

There's going to be a lot more like this: A class action has been filed on behalf of all Louisiana commercial fishermen and charter boat operators who have suffered from the recent Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Defendants named in the complaint include BP, PLC, and BP America, Inc. (which owned the oil well), Transocean Offshore Deepwater Drilling, Inc. (which leased the oil rig to BP), Halliburton (which was engaged in cementing operations at the well), and Cameron International Corporation (which supplied the blowout preventer valves for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that failed to activate.)
