BP sues U.S. government over contract ban

As of last November, the oil company can no longer take on new government contracts

Frequent litigation target BP is turning the tables by filing its own suit against the U.S. government.

The oil giant argues that the feds unfairly banned it from getting new government contracts. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) handed down the ban last November, citing BP’s “lack of business integrity as demonstrated by [its] conduct with regard to the Deepwater Horizon’s blowout, explosion, oil spill and response.”
