This update from the BP Oil Spill attorney criminal prosecution. In response to some of his co-defendants’ motion for continuance, on Friday Texas attorney Mikal Watts filed this response.

From the response:

Mikal Watts objects to a delay in the trial. Mr. Watts is ready to go to trial, answer the allegations, and prove his innocence to a jury of his fellow citizens…

Watts demands his speedy trial.

The response, filed by Watts’ attorney Rob McDuff, also states that the investigation has lasted four years.

Sounds like this will be a hard fought trial that may occur as soon as February.
