Protesters also headed to Boise…

Personal injury lawyers aren’t the only ones flocking to Boise for this Thursday’s Multidistrict Litigation Panel hearing on the BP oil spill. A group calling itself “” has secured permits for a protest outside the U.S. District Courthouse in Boise on Thursday, where its members plan to stage a “March On Boise,” or MOB, with the slogan, “Mad about BP? Join us! Let’s March On Boise.” The group, which says it advocates “peaceful protests for positive change,” is planning to meet at 7 a.m. in the northwest corner of Ann Morrison Park, march to the federal courthouse starting at 8 a.m., and protest in front of the James A. McClure Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse at 9 a.m. There’s more info here; the group says its concern is that “the victims of the Gulf Oil Disaster deserve to be heard by a judge with no ties to Big Oil.”

The multidistrict panel’s hearing on Thursday will focus, among other items, on which judge should hear hundreds of lawsuits against BP over the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
