BP faces tomorrow's third anniversary of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill with no sure knowledge of how much more it will have to pay government and private plaintiffs. The trial over liability wrapped up April 17, but Judge Barbier says he may not rule on fault and gross negligence before a second phase of the trial set for Sept. 16, and he’s considering a third phase to determine penalties; damages trials would follow.

    The judge seems loving to drag this out throughout his lifetime. Something like insured employment.

    Looks like this judge is eyeing the Supreme Court and that requires an anti BP judgement. Obama being an anti British president.
    Is there no honour anywhere?

    BP may not go bankrupt from all the fines, lawsuits,etc , but has their safety culture changed? If their safety culture has not changed, they will eventually cut more corners and another big accident in a refinery or on a rig will occur.
