Feds should prosecute, jail some BP execs
~Dr. David Uhlmann, former head of the U.S. Department of Justice Environmental Crimes Section, argues in the Michigan Law Review for criminal charges against BP, including manslaughter. He cites Title 18 Section 1115 of the U.S. Criminal Code, known as the “Seaman’s Manslaughter Statute.”
The statute holds companies, executives, managers and employees of vessels liable for fines and imprisonment for deaths occurring on their rigs.
Jeanne Grasso of Blank Rome LLP, a maritime and environmental law expert, says that in applying the statute, “it is important to note that intent is not an element of the offense and it is unnecessary to show that the acts or omissions that caused the loss of life were willful or intentional.” Rather, she explains, simple negligence is enough to secure a conviction.
