TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Attorney General Pam Bondi has filed a lawsuit against oil company BP and Halliburton over the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Bondi filed on Saturday on the three-year anniversary of the tragedy that killed 11 rig workers in the Gulf of Mexico and fouled 1,100 miles of beaches and marsh along the Gulf coast.
The 40-page lawsuit was filed in federal court in Panama City.
The suit includes several counts under federal, state and maritime law and focuses on Florida's economic losses. Bondi argues that the 2010 spill cost the state a variety of tax revenues.
The state also seeks punitive damages.
