5th Circ. Axes State Claims Over BP Deepwater Horizon Spill
Carmelite Bertaut was mentioned in the Law360 article, "5th Circ. Axes State Claims Over BP Deepwater Horizon Spill" published on February 25, 2014. She is co-counsel to Cameron International Corp. in a lawsuit brought by 11 Louisiana parishes seeking relief under Louisiana's wildlife protection statute for pollution-related wildlife damage linked to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The Fifth Circuit refused to revive state law claims because the allegations were preempted by federal law.
