Article Photos: BP accused of lying to govt during Gulf oil spill 2/3

The shoreline of Bay Jimmy, which was heavily impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, is seen in an area that has tar mats and oozing crude oil on the marsh platform, in Plaquemines Parish, La., Friday, Sept. 27, 2013. The methods that BP employed during its 86-day struggle to stop oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico will be the focus of a trial resuming Monday, Sept. 30, 2013 in New Orleans, in the high-stakes litigation spawned by the worst offshore spill in the United States.
