Oil industry seeks to intervene in environmental lawsuit over chemical dispersants
The Times-Picayune : November 2, 2012

  Summary:  A group of conservationists represented by Earthjustice opposes the American Petroleum Institute’s participation in a lawsuit aimed at establishing the federal government’s responsibility to evaluate the safety of products used to clean up oil spills. API, which is the primary national trade association of the oil and gas industry, has moved to intervene in the lawsuit, something environmentalists view with suspicion.

“We want the federal government to comply with the Clean Water Act to make sure that only dispersants that are safe for humans and the environment are used in the event of an oil spill,” said Hannah Chang in a statement, an attorney with public interest law firm Earthjustice. “We don’t need the American Petroleum Institute to be involved in this case arguing to maintain the status quo and pushing to weaken rules that should be more protective,” Chang added.
