BP Settlement Still Under Fire from BP
When will BP Stop Trying to delay the BP Settlement?
BP is at it again. After twice asking for a halt on all payments until the internal investigation within the BP settlement has concluded, Judge Barbier has ordered the BP Claims Administrator to respond to BP’s most recent request by August 26,2013.
If BP’s request is granted, payments to all claimants will be halted indefinitely. This is just what BP is hoping for.
Dirty Deeds Being done in the BP Settlement
We believe that certain Attorneys are trying to put an end to the settlement so they have the ability to litigate in court and charge 30-40% fees to claimants. In reality all the claimants want is a fair BP settlement and justice for their families and communities. Some attorneys on the other hand want as much of a cut they can get.
We also believe BP is trying to end the settlement, even though they are the ones that set it up with terms and guidelines to which they had previously agreed. BP has now seen that their initial projections of the actual dollar amount to be contributed to the BP settlement on their behalf were probably far too low. They are paying out more than they ever expected to, and they are not happy.
Are BP and certain attorneys working together to dissolve the settlement? We don’t know, but it does seem that they have a common interest; MONEY.
