Texas sues BP over Gulf oil spill

The state is seeking restitution for lost tourism revenue and environmental damages

Texas has become the latest state to sue BP Plc over its role in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill with a lawsuit accusing the oil company of “engag[ing] in willful and wanton misconduct.”

The suit contends that BP, along with its U.S. division, BP America; Transocean Ltd.; Halliburton Co. and Anadarko Petroleum Corp., violated Texas environmental regulations and cost the Lone Star State significant tourism revenue following the spill.
