The Associated Press reports the manslaughter trial of two BP rig supervisors has been delayed until  2014.  Robert Kaluza and Donald Vidrine are charged in the death of 11 workers. They’re accused of disregarding indications of trouble before BP’s well blowout, on April 20th, 2010. The explosion destroyed the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, and caused the worst offshore oil spill in US history.  U.S. District Judge Stanwood Duval Jr. had February 5th, 2013 as the trial date.

 

Defense lawyers said they needed more time to prepare. Prosecutors say they intend to introduce a million pages of information, including electronic communications, depositions and testimony. The new trial date has been set for January 13th, 2014.
