New Lawyer to Head Criminal Investigation of BP Deepwater Horizon Accident

The Houston Chronicle reported that John Buretta, an assistant US attorney who has been involved in organized crime cases in the Eastern Division of New York, will replace Howard Stewart, a veteran of the Justice Department’s environmental crimes unit, who has been leading the office in New Orleans performing a criminal investigation of the Deepwater Horizon accident.

The story implies that the new appointment was to reduce duplication of effort by combining three separate investigations into one.

What does this really mean? Let me know your thoughts …
