The manslaughter trial of BP supervisors Robert Kaluza and Donald Vidrine has been pushed back to June 2014 by federal judge Stanwood Duval Jr. Kaluza and Vidrine face eleven charges of manslaughter in the deaths of workers killed in the 2010 explosion of BP’s drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico.
The charges allege that they mishandled important safety testing prior to the explosion. They have pleaded not guilty. The delay of the trial, which was originally scheduled to begin in January 2014, came in response to a request for an even longer delay from Kaluza and Vidrine’s defense team.
