Louisiana's Attorney General Buddy Caldwell is ready to move forward with his own investigation of the crisis on the coast.
On Thursday, Judge Joy Lobrano authorized Caldwell's petition for discovery and investigation against British Petroleum .
The petition alleges BP has failed to cooperate and share important information with the state, including information about the cause of the explosion, the spills volume and rate of flow.
Caldwell says he also wants full access to the claims data base. He say it will allow him to make sure victims of this disaster are being treated fairly and receive proper assistance.
BP has ten days to object to the petition.
