Trial set for ex-BP executive in oil disaster

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A trial is expected to begin the week of March 9 for a former BP executive charged with obstructing a congressional investigation into the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The tentative trial date is part of an order U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt issued Monday after a status conference in the case of David Rainey.

Prosecutors allege that Rainey — during a May 4, 2010, congressional briefing — failed to disclose information about the estimated rate that oil was spewing from BP's blown-out well after a rig explosion.

They also claim Rainey responded to a letter from a subcommittee chairman with false and misleading information.

Rainey has pleaded not guilty.
