BP the Exception? New Report Details Corporate Evasion of Environmental Laws

At the Huffington Post, Anthony Tarricone, president of the American Association for Justice, wrote, “Unfortunately, it is only through disaster or tragedy when people begin to understand why a strong civil justice system is so necessary.”

As “the devastation from BP’s oil rig disaster grows, today the American Association for Justice released a new report detailing how corporations have evaded environmental laws for decades, only to later be held accountable and responsible for clean-up through the civil justice system.”

Given “the history of corporate behavior in the wake of such disasters, it is clear trial attorneys and the civil justice system will play a vital role in holding BP accountable and helping to return the Gulf to the state it once was.”
