This is a great read regarding the actions BP has taken since asking Judge Barbier to approve the settlement that BP negotiated. http://t.co/eTYyFnGkQ9
They have taken out full page ads in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal among others. Last I checked, no one was filing BP oil spill claims in New York City. They want you to believe the Claimants and the lawyers filing those claims are bad people. They don’t want you to pay attention to their criminal behavior that destroyed our Gulf Coast and killed 11 people, all in the name of BP saving a few bucks.
The bottom line is that their $500 million advertising campaign is meant to deter people from filing legitimate claims under the settlement agreement that they negotiated. It’s an unfortunate but expected tactic from a company with BP’s track record.
