BP to appeal Gulf of Mexico oil spill ruling

4th September 2014, Comments 0 comments

Oil giant BP said Thursday it would appeal a US judge's ruling that "gross negligence" on its part led to the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010.

"BP strongly disagrees with the decision issued today by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana and will immediately appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit," it said in a statement.
