BP oil spill settlement moves forward

Posted on May 10th, 2012 No Comments

Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier preliminarily approved a settlement against BP for the 2010 Gulf oil spill. He will hold a further hearing on November 8 before giving his final approval on the matter.

BP estimates that the proposed settlement will cost the company $7.8 billion. Over 100,000 claims have been filed against BP for various economic losses sustained by people in the area affected by the spill.

The class-action settlement does not include federal or state claims against the company, which are more concerned with the environmental impact of the spill.
