BP pleads guilty to criminal charges, then sues US government over ban.

FT: “BP is suing the US government over a decision to bar the company from winning new federal contracts after it pleaded guilty to criminal charges related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.” “Last November, the US Environmental Protection Agency temporarily suspended BP from new government contracts, citing the company’s “lack of business integrity” as demonstrated by its conduct in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.”
