According to Courthouse News Service, trial for the April 20, 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon is set to begin on February 27, 2012. United States Judge Carl Barbier, the judge responsible for managing the consolidated litigation, announced that the trial will be broken into three phases: the incident phase, the source control/discharge phase and the final phase addressing oil containment issues including use of skimmers, dispersant and boom. The incident phase will focus on the run-up to the disaster and the conduct of the parties responsible for controlling the Macondo well. There are currently over 100,000 plaintiffs involved in the litigation.
