Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Ohio Sues BP For Pension Losses After Deepwater Spill
Listen to the Story
The state of Ohio is suing BP.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says the 2010 Gulf Coast Oil Spill sent BP stocks tumbling, which hurt some state pensions. DeWine says BP falsely claimed to have adequate safety procedures in place.
“And as a result, people invested. In this case, pensioners of the state of Ohio bought stock and then lost money as a result of BP’s bad actions,” DeWine said.
DeWine could specify how much Ohio pensions lost as a result of the spill, but he said “we think it’s in the tens of millions of dollars.”
BP did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
