Shutdown delays BP lawsuit over federal contracts freeze

{mosads}BP, a major fuel supplier to the U.S. military, sued the EPA in August to end its ongoing suspension from winning new federal procurement contracts.

The EPA imposed the suspension in late 2012, shortly after BP’s $4.5 billion plea agreement
to resolve criminal and securities claims,
citing the oil giant’s “lack of business integrity as demonstrated by
the company’s conduct” in the Gulf of Mexico disaster.
