BP makes another request to suspend settlement payments
Posted on Thursday, September 26th, 2013 at 1:22 pm
BP requested another temporary suspension of settlement payments owed to residents and businesses along the Gulf Coast on Monday. The basis for their request lies in apparent misconduct within the payment program.
Though the misconduct within the claims department proved to be true, Louis Freeh, former FBI Director, said there was no reason for the settlement payments to be temporarily discontinued.
BP has previously requested on two separate occasions a suspension of settlement payments. Both requests were denied by U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier. It has not been said yet whether Barbier will approve this third request or not.
