Some Hayward video can't be used at BP trial

Posted: Updated:
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -

A federal judge has ruled that some video-recorded testimony by former BP CEO Tony Hayward will have to be excluded from the oil giant's upcoming civil trial over the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.

U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier on Friday ruled that certain references in the video deposition of Hayward that refer to previous BP accidents or allegations of misconduct unrelated to the 2010 accident would have to be removed.

The trial is set to begin Monday. BP faces billions of dollars in possible civil penalties.
