In this Wednesday, April 21, 2010 file photo, oil can be seen in the Gulf of Mexico, more than 50 miles southeast of Venice on Louisiana's tip, as a large plume of smoke rises from fires on BP's Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig.  Legal battles arising from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill play out in two federal courts this coming week.  On Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, trial resumes in a federal district courtroom where BP and a minority partner in its ill-fated Macondo well are trying to fend off billions in Clean Water Act penalties.  On Tuesday, federal appeals court judges hear an appeal in which BP seeks the ouster of the man overseeing payments to businesses claiming harm from the spill.  (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
