|Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is urging a federal judge in Louisiana to set a trial date to hear claims of lost tax revenue by the state and Louisiana against oil giant BP. Strange's comments came Friday, the two-year anniversary of the Gulf oil spill. The accident killed 11 workers and resulted in the largest offshore spill in U.S. history -- an estimated 210 million gallons of oil. 'Eleven men lost their lives and thousands of Gulf Coast residents lost their livelihoods,' the attorney general said in a statement. 'Unfortunately, two years later, the story has not ended. 'Oil still lies off Alabama's coastline. Many Alabamians still have not been compensated for their losses, and the State has still not been made whole by BP and the other defendants.'|
