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.
