Alabama Taking BP To Court

The state of Alabama is taking BP to court.

The state Attorney General is suing BP and others over the disaster in the Gulf, because he says the company has broken too many promises about accepting responsibility.

Two suits were filed in federal court Thursday. One is against BP, the other against Transocean and others, but they are identical in wording.

They seek unspecified money damages plus punitive damages against the companies.

A spokesman for BP says the company does not comment on ongoing litigation.

    Since the 1950's the Wichita County Mounted Patrol Rodeo brought in crowds from all across Texoma. After unexpectedly shutting down in 2011 due to financial issues it is coming back and better than ever. Former Steer Wrestling World Champion Mickey Gee told me there is nothing better than a Texas rodeo. The Wichita county native spent many years attending the WCMP Rodeo with his father and knew when the gates closed in 2011 he had to do something to bring it back.
