Hey I want to say that after doing some digging, this seems to be incorrect and from a single source
This is what I found digging into this:
"Here's the actual order: www.laed.uscourts.gov...
As I read it (and I am NOT a lawyer), a complaint was denied on several points, including many due to lack of standing of the plaintiffs. Another
point, a request for an injuction, was answered as follows:
To sustain their claims for injunctive relief, Plaintiffs must show that the injuries they allege will be redressed if they prevail. Although an
injunction need not return the waters to the pre-spill state, it must, however, provide some benefit or reduction in pollution.
In this case, no such benefit may be achieved by the Court's injunction. In fact, the injunction at this stage would be useless, as not only is there
no ongoing release from the well, but there is also no viable offshore facility from which any release could possibly occur. The Macondo well is dead,
and what remains of the Deepwater Horizon vessel is on the ocean floor, where it capsized and sank in 5,000 feet of water.
Moreover, BP and the agencies comprising the Unified Area Command have been and are cleaning up the Gulf of Mexico. An injury is not redressable by a
citizen suit when the injury is already being redressed.
As I read it, the complaint failed on multiple points. It does not say anything even resembling
... injury stopped the moment the well was sealed and that the Federal Government, aka The US Taxpayer, is now liable for clean up costs along with
any damages caused by deficiencies of the cleanup of the Gulf Of Mexico.
IF a court did issue a ruling/statement as was alleged here, I would be jumping up and down and screaming foul to any and all who would listen. But it
doesn't sound like that's at all what happened. Not at all.
Not every lawsuit filed is valid - even when the defendant is filthy, dirty, guilty of many bad things.
I mean no disrespect, but this should be taken down; it is simply not true or accurate"
So I think we are looking at some Disinfo.
