CLEAN: France's Total loses appeal over oil spill

French oil giant Total lost a bid on Tuesday to overturn its conviction for negligence in a 1999 shipwreck that caused a huge oil slick which polluted the coast of Brittany. The Paris appeals court confirmed the conviction and a fine of 375,000 euros imposed on Total in the 2008 ruling and boosted compensation awarded to the civil plaintiffs from 192 million to 200 million euros. But the court said Total's 'error' was not enough to impose civil responsibility, prompting several parties to call for a change in maritime law. Paris France (Footage by AFPTV via Getty Images)
