Plaintiff’s attorney disagrees that BP never used dispersant in INSHORE areas — “Comfortable” they will be able to prove it in court

Lawsuit: Man who tried to save drowning toddler became ill from oil, Press-Register, October 01, 2010:

A Saraland man who tried to rescue a drowning child in rough Gulf of Mexico waters near Orange Beach became severely ill after swallowing oil and chemical dispersant, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in Mobile....

[BP spokesman Justin] Saia on Thursday repeated BP’s contention that it never used dispersant in the inshore areas of Alabama and Mississippi. Hudley’s lawyers insisted otherwise.

“I think we would respectfully disagree with what BP has said with respect to the use of dispersant,” said Rhon Jones, head of the firm’s environmental litigation section. “We feel comfortable we will be able to prove that in a court of law.”
