Federal and state claims against BP for the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill have been resolved with the oil giant, the Justice Department says. The resolution includes civil claims and "the restoration of natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico," the agency says.
Details of the resolution will be announced Monday by Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch at an 11 a.m. ET news conference. The gathering will include Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.
