Written by  {ga=staffwriters}

Summary: Louisiana Governor bobby Jindal praises the consolidation of the federal BP oil spill court cases to the US District court of Louisiana, in New Orleans.

 

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal praised the decision by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation’s to consolidate the litigation for the BP oil spill in federal court in New Orleans.  Louisiana had filed a brief advocating for consolidation of the litigation in the Eastern District Court.

Governor Jindal said, “This decision is welcome news for Louisiana and our people, who have been at the epicenter of this tragic event. Today’s ruling fittingly notes if there is a ‘geographic and psychological center of gravity’ when it comes to the oil spill, Louisiana is certainly closest to that point. Our people have been severely impacted by the spill, and ultimately, these hearings are about bringing justice to them so they can be made whole again.”

Discuss this issue below.  Do you think the court made the right decision in this case?

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
