Dolphin Unusual Mortality Event2010 - 2012
  • March 23, 2012 - NOAA announcement related to poor dolphin health in Barataria Bay.
  • Symptoms are consistent with those seen in other mammals exposed to oil, but the study is not yet complete.
  • Similar health problems are not showing up in dolphins from the un-oiled areas.

Dolphin Y12 was evaluated in August 2011 as part of the NRDA. Y12’s health evaluation determined that he was significantly underweight, anemic, and had indications of liver and lung disease.

Carcass of Y12 recovered on Grand Isle Beach, January 31, 2012.

MDL Overview

  • Original phase 1 trial date - Feb. 27, 2012
  • Private and governmental claims
  • First phase of the trial seeks to:
    • Establish and allocate liability among the defendants
    • Determine whether any of the defendants were grossly negligent
  • LA filed suit in the MDL claiming:
    • Economic loss
    • Property damage
    • Increased cost of public services
    • Punitive damages
    • Damage to Natural Resources
slide16

PSC Settlement

  • March 3, 2012 – BP and PSC announce settlement on non-governmental claims arising from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
  • Settlement claims are uncapped, but are estimated to be $7.8 billion to resolve private plaintiffs’ claims for economic loss, property damages and injuries.
  • This settlement DOES NOT resolve the environmental claims against BP made by the federal government and five Gulf States under the Oil Pollution Act.
  • Liability for Natural Resource Damages and Clean Water Act penalties must still be resolved.
