No I was thinking about the response in contrast to that of Union Carbide in Bhopal and ExxonMobil in the Niger Delta, for example. Liability for the spill itself remains to be determined by the courts, of course, but since Transocean operated the rig and Halliburton was responsible for sealing the well they would appear to be prima facie answerable for the fallout.

sounds rather judgemental.

Well you can have the Union Carbide and Exxon comparison as judgmental if you like, although it's not sub judice, and is more or less factually incontrovertible, but you can't have Transocean and Halliburton because 'prima facie' is non judgmental, per se.
