BP negligent A federal judge ruled BP committed gross negligence that contributed to the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, a finding that may lead to the energy company owing billions in fines.

U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier found BP to hold the most responsibility for the catastrophe that killed 11 people and dumped millions of barrels of crude oil into the Gulf, spreading to impact the shorelines of five states.

"BP's conduct was reckless," Barbier wrote in his decision. "Transocean's conduct was negligent. Halliburton's conduct was negligent."

Barbier said BP was 67 percent responsible, Transocean 30 percent and Halliburton 3 percent.

He said BP was "subject to enhanced penalties under the Clean Water Act" because it was found to have committed gross negligence and willful misconduct.
