AG STRANGE ISSUES 2013 YEAR-IN-REVIEW ONLINE
(MONTGOMERY)—Attorney General Luther Strange is sharing highlights of his office’s activities last year through the online publication today of The Alabama Attorney General’s 2013 Year-in-Review.
“2013 was an eventful year for the Office of the Attorney General. We implemented several new initiatives related to texting and driving and internet safety, all while continuing traditions such as the annual Law Enforcement Summit. Additionally, I am extremely proud of the work my office put into reinstating the Safe School Awards, with a renewed focus on technological advances to deal with modern challenges,” said Attorney General Strange.
“Throughout this year, Alabama stood alongside private citizens, the United States Department of Justice, and the State of Louisiana in a two-part trial to prove the liability and gross negligence of the parties responsible for the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill,” the Attorney General stated. “We also secured a decision that will make Alabama the first state to try its own case for economic damages against BP, a trial for which we are presently preparing. And, as in 2011 and 2012, we utilized our in-house attorneys and resources to handle the litigation, saving the State of Alabama millions of dollars.”
As in years past, Attorney General Strange is providing the 2013 Year-In-Review electronically. “This method saves the taxpayers thousands of dollars during times of economic hardship and is available to state and local officials, as well as the public, at no cost by accessing www.ago.state.al.us/Page-Year-In-Review.”
