Judge orders video of Hayward deposition in oil spill case removed from The Daily and YouTube
A judge has ordered that video clips of a deposition former BP chief Tony Hayward gave last month in ongoing Gulf of Mexico oil spill litigation be removed from the sites of News Corp. online newspaper The Daily and Google Inc.'s YouTube.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Sally Shushan's order dated Tuesday says the clips were posted on thedaily.com and youtube.com and that release of the video may violate a previous court order.
The Associated Press published a story Friday detailing what Hayward said in the deposition he gave to lawyers for the Justice Department, the plaintiffs suing BP and states harmed by last year's oil spill off Louisiana. The story was based on transcripts of the deposition.
Shushan's order does not address publication of text from the deposition.
