Suffolk Law School alumnus Carl Rosenblum is involved in litigation resulting from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, arguing successfully for plaintiffs fighting the federal government’s six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling.

Rosenblum represents drilling companies in the lawsuit.

A federal judge in Louisiana has granted a preliminary restraining order, keeping the Department of Interior moratorium from taking effect until a trial is held.

The White House has said it would appeal.

Rosenblum argued that suspension of deep water oil drilling could prove more economically devastating than the BP spill.
