U.S. District Court Judge, Carl Barbier, who is tasked with presiding over the more than 300 lawsuits filed by individuals and companies against BP as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill has indicated that he would like to set the first trial for June 2011.
BP’s lawyers have expressed discontent over the intended date indicating that they would prefer more time to prepare their cases. Judge Barbier, however, has expressed desires to expedite the process.
