Oil firm BP has filed suit against the US government for banning it from federal contracts after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, documents showed Tuesday.
In a suit filed in federal court in Texas, BP said the ban last year by the US Environmental Protection Agency, which locked it out of new business with the government, surpassed the agency’s authority and constituted an abuse of power.

No sure of the reasoning behind the governments continuing legal block on new BP projects as they are letting BP's other existing projects continue. Must still be mad at them.

And they blame the US for abuse of power? Seriously? They should be thanking the United States that they didn't allow open season in courtrooms across the gulf for businesses to sue the holy living [snip] out of BP till they were just a bankrupted memory.
