BP FACES LITIGATION FROM RIG EXPLOSION

As the companies involved in the construction, leasing and operation of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig try to pin blame on one another for the explosion and subsequent spill, the litigation resulting from the spill in the Gulf of Mexico also keeps getting messier.
BP, Transocean, Halliburton, Cameron and others already face dozens of potential class action lawsuits.
BP and Transocean face wrongful-death lawsuits brought by families of some of the 11 victims who died in the April 20 blast -- as well as ones brought by those injured and evacuated from the rig.
The companies also face other potential class action suits brought by fishermen, restaurants, charter boat companies and homeowners. Municipalities could sue for lost tax revenues. Shipping companies could also sue, if traffic along the Mississippi River gets disrupted.
