BP Oil Spill MDL Gushes On

Judge Barbier in the Eastern District of Louisiana held a monthly status conference on August 12, 2011.  The minute order  entered thereafter hints at a plethora of civil procedure issues going on in the cases.  At one point, without further explanation, the court “reminded parties of the public website for MDL 2179.”
