NEW ORLEANS – A Terrebonne Parish corporation alleges that it suffered economic damages as a result of the Deepwater Horizon spill.
Juneau Marine Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Inc. filed a complaint on June 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against BP Exploration & Production Inc., Transocean LTD, Halliburton Energy Services Inc., et al. citing the Oil Pollution Act.
