A federal judge this week delayed the trial of a former BP engineer who is accused of deleting company text messages related to BP’s response to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The trial for the engineer, Kurt Mix, was scheduled to begin Feb. 25, but U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval Jr. postponed it to June 10 in order to give defense attorneys and prosecutors more time to prepare. Mix is accused of obstruction of justice and faces charges of deleting text messages to a supervisor and a contractor regarding BP’s response in the wake of the oil spill in order to keep them from being used by a federal grand jury.
