Open Season: Trial Lawyers Ready To Jump Into The Oil Spill by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) 1 Jun 2010 post a comment Share This: President Obama has once again shown his lack of judgment, by sending Attorney General Eric Holder down to the Gulf of Mexico to investigate possible litigation. Clearly, the White House has misplaced priorities, instead of sending more engineers and experts, we are sending down trial lawyers to determine possible punitive damages. The President makes time in his daily schedule to appear regularly on television programs, yet his recent trip to Louisiana only lasted a handful of hours. Instead of concentrating on stemming the ongoing oil spill, the Obama administration is opening up a new gusher, full of litigation and trial lawyers. Is this the best President Obama can do to stop the oil spill?
