In a letter dated Aug. 19, Alabama State Bar General Counsel J. Anthony McLain advised Strange that his work with Transocean would present a conflict only if Strange had obtained confidential information during his employment with Transocean that could be used against the company in litigation. Strange maintains he has no conflict. BP declined to comment on the issue.
Talk about turning an issue on its head. It's highly unlikely that the fine folks at Transocean have anything to worry about with Luther Strange. After all, he's their boy. It's the regular citizens of Alabama who have cause for concern about our state's new AG.
Isn't it interesting that Tony McLain, of the Alabama State Bar, sees no possible conflict if Luther Strange uses his 30-year ties to Transocean to help fleece the public?
Looks like it's business as usual in Alabama.
