BP Atlantis $256 Billion Whistle-Blower Case Dismissed

The judge said today that Abbott wasn’t eligible to sue because he lacked
firsthand knowledge that hundreds of Atlantis engineering drawings were
missing approval stamps by certified engineers.

After internal e-mails and working documents raised his suspicions, Abbott
obtained papers giving details of the alleged lapses through Freedom of
Information Act requests. Hughes said that wasn’t enough to overcome legal
barriers to whistle-blower lawsuits.

“Precise and verifiable facts make you an original source, not unfounded
suspicions,” Hughes said. “Abbott has only seen working papers that BP
created to help it track the paperwork errors that it needed to fix.”
