On Wednesday, the federal judge overseeing the civil trial to determine liability of BP and others involved in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill dismissed the remaining claims against one of the companies involved in the case. Cameron International, which made a blowout preventer for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that exploded and led to the deaths of 11 workers and the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, had the claims against it dismissed by U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier. Barbier said he had “seen no evidence to support a finding of negligence against Cameron that could in any way caused or contributed to the accident.” The ruling leaves oil giant BP, Deepwater Horizon oil rig owner Transocean, and cement contractor Halliburton as the last defendants in the civil trial.
