As Katherine Rodriguez read about the tentative settlement between BP and thousands of businesses and individuals, the memories flooded back.

She remembered driving to Galveston for the first day of a different legal proceeding with the same defendant. Her family was suing BP after her father, Ray Gonzalez, was killed at BP’s Texas City refinery in the fall of 2004.

The proposed settlement between BP and business owners and others harmed by the Deepwater Horizon disaster is a big step in repairing the economic hardship unleashed by the oil spill, but it overlooks those most affected by the explosion that killed 11 men.

NEW ORLEANS–A federal judge gave the green light Tuesday to a deal that allowed BP to plead guilty to manslaughter and other criminal charges stemming from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill in exchange for a $4 billion fine, probation and independent monitoring.

BP lawyer Mark Filip entered the guilty plea on the company’s behalf.


BP and Oil Spill Victims Both Want Settlement Overturned

For months, BP’s (NYSE:BP) objections to the settlement with oil spill victims a New Orleans district court judge approved last year has been met with staunch opposition from both the legal representation of those individuals and businesses harmed by the disaster and Judge Carl Barbier himself. But just as the oil producer has appealed the settlement, arguing that it unfairly compensates “fictitious” losses, victims have made their own appeal, claiming that the settlement is unfair because it gives uneven or inconsistent compensation to claimants with similar losses. That both sides are disputing the fairness of the deal gives BP an opportunity.

HOUSTON – BP said Wednesday it will take the courtroom fight over its multibillion-dollar oil spill settlement to the Supreme Court.

The London-based oil company has argued for months that it has paid potentially hundreds of millions of dollars to claimants who were not affected by the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, violating its interpretation of the $9.2 billion settlement it reached with plaintiffs’ attorneys in 2012.

HARVEY, La. -- In a shocking move, BP has decided to shut down its internal oil spill claims program, taking away an avenue for more than 10,000 claimants who have opted out of the oil giant’s controversial settlement agreement or others who are not covered by it.

BP won’t say how many claimants it served with the BP Claims Program over the last two years, but the amount paid through the end of April was a paltry $12 million. By contrast, over the exact same time frame, the court-supervised settlement program paid $3.8 billion.
