MOBILE, AL - Alabama Attorney General Troy King will address local government officials about their legal challenges and options related to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

AG King will discuss the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, restrictions on litigation, communications from British Petroleum, and other information pertinent to local governments concerned about recouping losses associated with the oil spill. 

"It is essential that local governments are aware of their options and the need to act deliberately and carefully in pursuing them," said King.

The meeting will take place at 8:00 am, Thursday May 6, at Government Plaza in downtown Mobile. 

The Mobile County Commission worked with the Attorney General to facilitate the event. 

"We are very thankful for the Attorney General's guidance," said Mobile County Commissioner Stephen Nodine. "All local governments on the coast are facing some very critical legal decisions." 

Mobile County Commissioner Mike Dean is encouraging all mayors, county commissioners, legislators, and other top officials in Mobile and Baldwin Counties to attend. "Everything with the spill is happening very quickly," said Dean. "This meeting will be very beneficial."
