Michael Palmintier attended the Multi District Litigation Panel Hearing in Boise, Idaho on July 29th. Michael and Josh are part of a team of attorneys, representing plaintiffs in the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill case. Mr. Palmintier’s objective, along with other attorneys, was to argue for the transfer of all related cases to the Eastern District of Louisiana under District Judge Carl Barbier. BP wanted the spill cases to be heard by a federal judge in Houston.
On August 10th, the seven judge panel ruled that Judge Barbier will oversee the oil spill cases in New Orleans. Michael and Josh Palmintier will continue to fight for fairness in the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil spill case. The cases are in their early stages, the Palmintier website will provide updates as progress is made.
