BP vs Patrick Juneau “the settlement is unlawful.”
The United States Court of Appeals in New Orleans, while upholding the lower court’s dismissal of a BP lawsuit against Mr. Juneau, ordered Judge Barbier to give “further consideration” to the complaints.
“The district court had no authority to approve the settlement of a class that included members that had not sustained losses at all, or had sustained losses unrelated to the oil spill as BP alleges,” the court ruled. It concluded that in the event that the administrator was interpreting the settlement to include people who did not suffer spill damages, “the settlement is unlawful.”
Finally, finally, finally.... some common sense and justice is coming out of the Great State of Louisiana. I can flush my valium pills down the toilet now. What makes some of those Louisianans so squirly though? Is it the heat, the cayenne pepper, the mint julep or the french genes? Winter is on its way with cooler temperatures. Things are bound to get better in the coming months. I am having a great day.
