24. IIRC, the $75M limit doesn't apply in cases of willful negligence.
Since the stories about the rig and about BP executives seem to confirm that they were deliberately cutting safety corners, we can argue that this is willful and deliberate negligence and malfeasance at work, and I remember something in that law that makes the $75M limit inapplicable.
