Moratorium BP Claims get some Hope
Moratorium BP Claims get Support
A large news syndicate has just reported that a member of congress, Rep. Joseph Landry of Louisiana, is calling for the New Settlement Agreement to accept BP Moratorium claims. The New Settlement Agreement is the Settlement Agreement that had been authored by the Plaintiff Steering Committee. Also, BP Moratorium claims have been historically denied by the GCCF, which we are sure you are all familiar with that policy by now.
As we advocate for different classes to be included in the BP claims settlement process, we are noticing a few changes. First, there is a medical class, now there is news breaking for the BP Moratorium claims, we wonder what will be next; Quick Pay Victims?
We’re working on it.
BP Claims and the Moratorium
This is a new development in the BP claims process, however, and it is big. This class of claims, BP Moratorium claims, now have a new ally in Rep. Landry. It would seem that, in regards to this class of BP claims, common sense is on the rise for BP Moratorium claims. After all, as you all know, the Spill occurred 4/20/10, President Obama ordered the Moratorium in May of 2010.
The legal justification that BP used to deny these particular BP claims? The President’s order issuing the Moratorium was an act of intervening cause that severed BP’s liability towards Oil Industry Workers. In other words, BP Moratorium claims were not being paid because of the President’s Moratorium. And, BP was allowed to deny these BP claims, and has been able to do so, without recourse or rebuttal, except from us, and some PSC members.
As you may not know, BP was able to exercise strong control over Feinberg/Rosen and the GCCF. It was most likely BP’s call to deny BP Moratorium claims. Another fund was setup to pay the claims but it was not easily understood or very successful. If it wasn’t BP’s decision to deny these BP claims, could it have been Feinberg’s? Possibly.
Fortunately, from what we are seeing with the new BP Settlement Agreement for BP claims, needed issues are being addressed and it should work for most claimants.
We would like to say that, ‘it’s all water under the bridge,’ but we cannot. There are thousands of Oil Industry Workers who have not been able to receive reimbursement for their losses after filing a BP claim. They were denied and many were laid off because of the Spill. This would mean that these workers have suffered, and have suffered, with BP’s policies towards BP Moratorium claims.
