Pappas Restaurants Sues BP Over Oil Spill

Seafood restaurant chain Pappas Restaurants Inc., based in Houston, has filed a lawsuit against British Petroleum over the April 20 oil spill. Restaurant owners claim that the oil spill has been detrimental to their business because they rely on fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico. The lawsuit also contends that they have had to increase prices, which is driving customers away. The Daily News is reporting that similar lawsuits from other local seafood restaurants may follow.
