Appeals Court Revives BP plc Stock Drop Suit

A federal appeals court has revived a stock drop case, filed against BP Plc, based on a new precedent set by the U.S. Supreme Court. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas had dismissed Whitley v. BP Plc on the grounds that the plaintiffs had not overcome the presumption of prudence standard, as established in Moench v. Robertson, relating to investement in company stock. The district court also denied the plaintiffs' request to amend their complaint. Following plaintiffs' appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the Moench standard was impacted by a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the separate case of Dudenhoeffer v. Fifth Third Bancorp. This June 2014 ruling dispatched Moench and held that ERISA fiduciaries managing a plan invested in company stock are subject to the same duty of prudence as any other ERISA fiduciary, except that they need not diversify the fund's assets. The Supreme Court ruling also set a standard for pleadings in stock drop cases. The 5th Circuit vacated the district court ruling and remanded the case back to that court for reconsideration in light of Dudenhoeffer. Former BP Plc employee Ralph Whitley filed suit against the company in June 2010. The suit alleged that since the defendants (which include: BP Plc; BP America Inc.; Anthony Hayward; Andy Inglis; Carl Henric Svanberg; and State Street Bank and Trust Company) were fiduciaries of the company's retirement plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), they should have known that the BP Stock Fund, which consisted of BP American Depository Shares, was no longer a prudent investment due to its decreasing value after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The suit alleged that the defendants breached their fiduciary duty by not taking action to remedy this situation.

Harris County, Texas Sues BP, Transocean, Halliburton and Others for Deepwater Horizon Damages

Harris county, Texas has filed a lawsuit seeking damages from BP, Transocean, Halliburton and other companies involved in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The lawsuit, filed in US District Court, Southern District of Texas, alleges that the companies negligent and reckless conduct resulted in the blowout of the Macondo well in April 2010, causing the oil spill and damaging economies around the Gulf of Mexico, including Harris county's. It seeks a jury trial and more than $23 million in damages. Tourism and business-related travel in Harris county fell, affecting revenue from hotel occupancy taxes. Offshore exploration moratoriums in response to the spill also depressed activity in the offshore industry and reduced business property taxes, Harris county alleges in the lawsuit.
