According to the press release,
As part of the resolution, BP has agreed to plead guilty to 11 felony counts of Misconduct or Neglect of Ships Officers relating to the loss of 11 lives; one misdemeanor count under the Clean Water Act; one misdemeanor count under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act; and one felony count of obstruction of Congress....Under U.S. law, companies convicted of certain criminal acts can be debarred from contracting with the federal government. BP has not been advised of the intention of any federal agency to suspend or debar the company in connection with this plea agreement. BP will continue to work cooperatively with the debarment authority.
Aidan: Was listening to NPR this morning. They (dunno who precisely) figured it could be as high as 20B, but probably around 11B. They said BP had 3B saved up to pay already.Not impressed. 4.5B is not enough, IMO.
netringer: What happend to "BP will not leave the gulf until we have cleaned up every drop?"
ZAZ: rdu_voyagerActual humans convicted of felonies still have a right to speech.
Satanic_Hamster: Remember: Kill a dozen workers due to lax safety standards, cover it up, massively pollute the environment and have the federal and state governments incur massive cleanup costs? Why, those people are Republican heroes!
