BP launched a new effort Monday to attempt to temporarily halt paying oil spill claims stemming from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. In a court filing on Aug. 5, BP makes new allegations of fraud and conflicts of interest in the court-administered program that reviews and approves claims under the terms of last year’s multidistrict lawsuit settlement. The oil giant has made multiple efforts to get courts to approve a suspension of oil spill claims payouts under the terms of a settlement agreement it agreed to. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier has twice denied BP’s requests, saying he could find no evidence of widespread fraud; BP is awaiting another ruling from an appeals court. If you suffered business revenue loss or diminution of property value following the Gulf oil spill and you have not already filed a claim, you may still be eligible to do so under the terms of the settlement.
