Alabama Sues BP

In what is now the 4th lawsuit filed against BP in regards to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Alabama filed suit yesterday for the damages incurred from the spill.  The lawsuit does not specify how much Alabama seeks in damages.  However, the official complaint, which you can view here [pdf.], claims that BP was negligent and that Alabama seeks “relief available under all applicable state and federal laws and any relief the court deems just.”

Alabama also filed a similar but separate suit naming Halliburton, Transocean, and Anadarko.
