Big Oozy on Trial, Part II
BP, Feds Back in Court to Argue Over Barrel Count, BOP on BOP
Remember the Top Kill? How about the Junk Shot? No, they weren't two of DJ Jubilee's many dance crazes. Instead, they combined to form one of BP's many failed attempts to cap the runaway Macondo well as it leaked millions of barrels of oil from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
Former FBI Director Finds Potential Corruption in Deepwater Horizon Claims Office
Patrick Juneau is Freeh to carry on, for now. For months, BP has been alleging corruption in the office of Juneau, where claims connected to the oil company's settlement with thousands of Louisiana residents and businesses in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon disaster are dispensed. An investigation of the claims office undertaken by former FBI Director Louis Freeh found conflicts of interest in the claims administrator's office, but cleared Juneau of wrongdoing.
Levee Authoritiy Seeks Big Money From Big Oil for Wetland Restoration
The shipping canals, pipes and other parts of South Louisiana's oil and gas infrastructure that stretch across the bayous and other wetlands downriver from New Orleans have long contributed to land loss along the coast. Facing down the prospect of less land for flood protection and more stress on levees, the group that oversees levees on the east bank of the Mississippi is going to court to get some of the money and repairs that Big Oil has never been forced to pay.
Tar Mat Spat: BP Says Oil-Related Fishing Closure Makes State Look Bad
BP is going to the mat over a fishing closure in state waters off Plaquemines Parish over Fourth of July weekend. The British oil giant isn't happy with the state's decision to close waters to fishing because of oil finds. Following a state Wildlife and Fisheries hold on fishing near East Grand Terre Island due to the discovery of an underwater tar mat, the company responsible for the Deepwater Horizon disaster accused the state of "perpetuating the myth" that Gulf seafood is unsafe.
I Turn My Cameron On: BP Asks PM for Help to Tame Claims
Three years after the Big Oozy, BP is now worried about a leak on the other side of the pond. Unsurprisingly, the British oil giant is worried about the money flowing out of their coffers into Louisiana and the other Gulf states that saw oil on their shores in 2010. According to a report by the BBC, BP HQ thinks their company is in jeopardy because of "fictitious" claim payments. The company is so worried that they want the prime minister to get involved, according to the report.
Anthony Bourdain, Andy Cohen Lock Tweets Over Top Chef's BP Bucks
We already knew that Anthony Bourdain knew and liked us better than most other chefs of his small screen stature. And now it seems he's prepared to take up arms for New Orleans - or, at least, fingers. The Parts Unknown host took a proposition to Bravo brass Andy Cohen in the wake of the revelation that Top Chef is coming to New Orleans -- partially on BP's dime. Despite cameos by Wendell Pierce and David Simon, Cohen appeared nonplussed. Click through for the full exchange:
Jindal: New BP Money for La. Coast
More of BP's millions are headed to the Louisiana's imperiled Gulf Coast. Today, Governor Bobby Jindal and key politicians of local and state government announced that BP had agreed to an additional $340 million in projects for Louisiana's Gulf Coast region, projects that the Governor promised would help restore critical coastal infrastructure necessary for storm protection and restoring land and wildlife to the region.
On Third Anniversary of Deepwater Horizon Disaster, Disappearing Land and Reappearing Oil in Plaquemines Parish (PHOTOS)
While oil globs in Bay Jimmy and the occasional sheen continue to serve as chemical reminders of the Big Oozy, some of the most damaging effects of the 2010 disaster three years later are revealed by what can no longer be seen.
No Shame in Their Claim: Feds Uncover $300k in Bogus BP Payments
The feds ended a group of of claim for more than a dozen people this week.

The fraudulent claims for reimbursement for financial harm caused by 2010’s BP Deepwater Horizon disaster totaled more than $300,000 in damages, U.S. District Attorney Dana Boente alleged in court documents filed Thursday.
