Statement from Attorney General Luther Strange Regarding BP
Criminal Case

(Montgomery) – “Today’s announcement that BP has agreed to plead guilty to 14
criminal charges under Federal law moves us one step closer to getting justice for the
citizens of Alabama and the entire Gulf Coast. BP’s criminal acts levied economic and
environmental damages of historic proportions upon Alabama, and these damages are
not covered under today’s agreement. Accordingly, in my role as the States’
Coordinating Counsel, I will continue devoting my time to holding BP and the other
responsible parties accountable for their acts, and I look forward to presenting
Alabama’s case that BP was grossly negligent when we have our day in court.”
