Plaintiffs lawyers are converging on New Orleans today for another Gulf Coast oil spill gathering to discuss everything from the parallels with the Exxon Valdez disaster to the best trial techniques to nail an oil giant. No doubt the lawyers will also try to draw some shade of meaning for future litigation from Tuesday’s decision by U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman of New Orleans to block the Obama administration’s six-month moratorium on deep-water drilling.

Scheduled speakers at the HarrisMartin Oil Spill Litigation Conference, to be held in the W Hotel New Orleans, hail from all over the country — including lawyers from Mississippi, Minnesota, Ohio, New York and Texas who have handled environmental disasters, water contamination issues, government claims and RICO claims.
