Question and answer
A corporation is liable for the torts and crimes that are committed by its agents and employees when they are acting within the scope of their employment. Directors, officers, and employees are
personally liable for the torts and crimes that they commit within the scope of their employment. Can and should these principles be applied to the disaster at the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil drilling platform in April 2010? If so, how?
I don't believe that the company necessary committed any crime. The fact of the matter is, accidents happen and I don't believe any company would initiate a disaster such as this. [ That said, they ought to be held responsible for the issues that they caused, but legal action I don't think is necessary in terms of criminal punishment. ]
