SD Supreme Court: No Take-Back On SD's Reimbursement Of BP's Cleanup
The petroleum company BP does not have to reimburse a state environmental cleanup fund. The South Dakota Supreme Court made that opinion public on Thursday, Aug. 13.
Over 12 years, the state's Petroleum Release Compensation Fund reimbursed BP more than $3 million for cleanup of leaks from underground tanks at South Dakota gas stations.
A few years later, the state asked for it back.
