I dedicate this thread to the following 11 brave men who gave their lives that we may enjoy the advanced lifestyles that we live:

Karl Kleppinger, 38, of Natchez, Mississippi
Adam Weise,24 of Yorktown, Texas
Aaron Dale Burkeen, a 37-year-old of Neshoba County Mississippi.
Donald Clark, 49, of Newellton, Louisiana.
Roy Kemp, 27, Jonesville, Louisiana
Jason Anderson,35, of Bay City, Texas
Stephen Curtis, 39, of Georgetown, Louisiana
Gordon Jones, 28, of Louisiana
Blair Manuel, 56, of Gonzales, Louisiana
Dewey Revette, 48, from State Line, Mississippi
Shane Roshto, 22, was from Franklin County, Mississippi.

May we continue to encourage the development of clean energy and demand that the safety of workers be our top priority.

The trial for the BP Deepwater Horizon will begin February 27, 2012 and is going to be done in three phases. May Truth and Justice prevail.

At the monthly status conference on Friday, U.S. Judge Carl J. Barbier said he has not yet issued a formal trial plan, but it "is essentially going to be the proposed trial plan that Anadarko submitted a while back," which breaks the trial into three phases.

The initial "incident phase" of the trial will examine the role of the various defendants in the loss of well control, the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and the initiation of the flow of oil.

Powerful testimony of Chris Jones' brother during a House of Representatives Natural Resources Committee hearing encouraging that safety reforms be implemented.

This is the news from the BP trial from Judge Barbier's courtroom in New Orleans from Fridays briefing.

U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier ruled Friday that Transocean cannot sue the U.S. government for fault in the Deepwater Horizon blowout, as Uncle Sam has sovereign immunity.

Also addressed in oral argument were terms of BP contracts with Vessels of Opportunity (VoO) participants who chartered their boats to BP to work in the cleanup.
Several thousand VoO participants have sued BP, saying BP kept them and their boats on standby, in some instances for several months, but failed to pay their wages or for the charters. Many say BP promised to decontaminate their boats after the work was done, but failed to do so.
During oral argument, Barbier asked for clarification of the contracts the VoO plaintiffs signed and what they expected from BP in return.

The trial begins in 67 working days on February 27th. The next status conference is December 16th. Expert testimony is being given in New Orleans in preparation for the trial.

The trial of the century should be starting soon. May the people, the wildlife and the environment of the Gulf prevail!
The oil is still here, despite what BP is trying to tell the public.

This is a very informative video of the upcoming trial and what each part consists of.
