Judge finds that Feinberg is not fully independent of BP

Posted on February 3rd, 2011 No Comments

The administrator of the $20 billion BP fund that was set up to help compensate victims who were affected by the oil spill, Kenneth Feinberg, has been on the claim that he is fully independent from BP.

A judge in the U.S. District Court issued the response after Feinberg said that he was completely independent from BP while settling claims through the fund. The judge said that these claims are “improper.”

The judge has stated that the relationship between BP and Feinberg are “hybrid” because the company is not settling any complaints, but they are the ones who appointed Feinberg. It is thought that because of this, more people may sue and not accept any quick settlements from the fund.

If you or a loved one has been denied a claim, this could cause you and your family to face serious financial issues after the damage that was done from the oil spill. Contact the Gulf oil spill rejected claims lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-821-1544 and discussing your case.
