BP plc : Judge Denies BP Access to White House Emails on Oil Spill -Reuters

06/11/2012 | 02:32pm US/Eastern

A U.S. federal judge ruled against BP Plc's (BP) bid to gain access to 21 emails and other documents sent by the White House and other officials related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Reuters reported Monday.

The federal government's need to keep the documents confidential and the public interest in ensuring an effective response to the next disaster outweighed BP's need for the documents to defend itself in litigation, Judge Sally Shushan said in New Orleans, according to Reuters.

Company spokesman Scott Dean declined to comment, according to the report.
