AG Strange Announces Appointment of Louisiana AG as “Co-Coordinating Counsel” in Oil Spill Litigation

Staff Report

From the Office of Attorney General Luther Strange

(MONTGOMERY)— Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange announced today that Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has been named “Co-Coordinating Counsel for the States’ Interests” in the litigation stemming from the April 2010 Gulf Oil Spill. AG Strange, who was named the Coordinating Counsel for the States in January 2011, welcomed the district court’s appointment: “I am thrilled to have General Caldwell standing by my side. Both he and Governor Bobby Jindal will prove to be powerful allies in the collective effort to hold those responsible for the Spill accountable to the victims in every Gulf State.”

Upon his inauguration one year ago yesterday, AG Strange assumed leadership over Alabama’s lawsuit against the parties accused of causing the Spill and has since worked closely with Alabama Governor Robert Bentley to recoup the State’s economic and environmental damages.
