A revised Oil Pollution Act Case Digest and Source Book will be available on June 2, 2010. Mr. William Bode, Esq., managing partner of the law firm of Bode & Grenier, LLP and Editor and Publisher of the digest announced today that the revised Digest may be ordered starting today. The Digest was originally published in 2004 and contains a summary, organized by issue, of every court case treating the Oil Pollution Act, a Summary and Analysis of OPA Consent Decrees, the copy of the OPA and proposed revisions pending before the U.S. Congress, and guidance for submitting claims under the OPA.
