Two weeks ago, BP announced that it would have to pay more than previously expected for economic loss and property damage claims related to the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. On Friday, the oil giant asked a federal judge to temporarily block further payouts. BP alleges that the court-appointed administrator of the payouts violated the terms of the settlement in his use of a complex formula to interpret damage amounts. The motion filed by BP also accuses the settlement administrator of paying claims seeking “fictitious losses.” The Mobile, Alabama, oil spill attorneys at Long & Long continue to investigate claims from business owners and property damages who suffered income loss or diminution of property value in the wake of the BP oil spill.
