STATEMENT FROM BRENT COON, BRENT COON AND ASSOCIATES, ON US DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE ACTIONS TODAY REGARDING BP
"This settlement fully validates our position that Lord Browne and his cronies at BP were directly responsible for the fatal explosion at Texas City. We are proud to have provided the DOJ with key internal BP documents - documents that might have been sealed away were it not for the courage of one Eva Rowe.
"Lord Browne, presumably no longer on BP's payroll but still inexplicably protected by BP's lawyers, has yet to take the stand to tell the families of the dead how his budget cuts killed their loved ones. We await the Texas Supreme Court's decision on this matter. In the meantime, we hope that BP understands that shelling out more money to settle criminal charges will not make the remaining civil cases related to Texas City simply go away."
