    have their Corporate Charter,


    and their Assets,

    held in escrow,

    pending the parade of civil suits,

    in the queue.

    •  If BP's American "home state" is Delaware, (2+ / 0-)

      then Attorney General Beau Biden is the guy to have on our side.  (I hope he get's better soon.)

      Believe it or not, corporate charters are revoked all the time, just not multinational behemoths like BP.  That doesn't mean it can't be done.  From what I've read, someone has to go to Delaware, get a copy of that charter, and find some way that BP has done something that violates their designated purpose.  Once that's done, the state's Attorney General's support is critical.
