Britain has for the first time waded in to BP’s legal battle over payouts for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, saying US court rulings against the energy group raise “grave international comity concerns”.

In a filing to the US Supreme Court, the UK government said BP had “gone to great lengths to restore the gulf coast”, but was being forced to pay large sums to individuals and businesses who were not affected by the spill.

It warned that the courts’ treatment of BP undermined confidence in fairly resolving disputes in the US and the “trust necessary for international commerce”.

The UK’s arguments have been echoed in filings from business groups, warning that rulings against BP could hurt businesses and consumers and make the US a less attractive place to invest.

The intervention comes on the heels of protests from France over an $8.9bn fine levied against BNP, the French bank, which fuelled European concerns about US “extraterritoriality”, or the principle of US authorities extending their reach to foreign companies.

The BP filings, known as “amicus briefs”, are intended to help persuade the Supreme Court to hear a case that could limit the compensation that BP is forced to pay.

Judge Carl Barbier of Louisiana’s Eastern District issued his FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW IN PHASE ONE TRIAL. The 150+ page document suggests that punitive damages may be appropriate as Plaintiff’s argument for same is “not without merit” according to Barbier. But, 5th Circuit precedent may preclude same.
