Tuesday began the third and final segment of the trial for the BP oil spill that happened in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. This portion of the trial is mostly about determining whether BP should pay $13.7 billion in Clean Water Act penalties — $4,300 for each of the 3.19 million barrels of oil that were discharged as a result of the oil disaster. To make that determination, lawyers are looking at the existing damage as well as what future harm may arise as a result of the 2010 spill.
