Wylie Aitken Offers Legal Insight to the LA Daily Journal Following Oil Spill

A massive oil spill off the Orange County coast has leaked more than 126,000 gallons of crude oil into the sea, forcing beaches to close to the public and damaging the environment. As investigators determine what caused the spill, AAC’s founding partner Wylie Aitken offered his legal insight to the Los Angeles Daily Journal, discussing the possibility of a cargo ship traffic jam being the main culprit. “It’s become another adverse effect of the pandemic, with no workers. Therefore, these ships can’t unload their tanks, so the tankers are waiting their turn with no place to go.”
