The Runner: Nic Cage's Louisiana Political Drama Reviewed



Nicholas Cage loves New Orleans. The actor has taken a few trips to OPP, built himself an illuminati-esque mausoleum in St. Louis No. 1, and shot several features in the City. The Runner is the latest addition to Cage’s NOLA love affair. Written and directed by Austin Stark, the film depicts the trial and tribulations of a disgraced Louisiana pol.


Big Dollars for Big Oozy

BP Agrees to 18.7 Billion Dollar Settlement for Deepwater Horizon



The protracted Big Oozy saga is one step closer to a legal resolution. On Thursday (7.02), the Justice Department announced that BP will pay 18.7 billion dollars to settle civil claims related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster including over 6.8 billion dollars to Louisiana.

P&J's Sal Sunseri Talks Oyster Issues Ahead of Fest



This weekend, New Orleanians will gather to celebrate the annual Oyster Festival, but in the unofficial “Oyster Capital of America,” all is not right. Five years after the explosion of BP’s oil rig, Deepwater Horizon, New Orleanians are still reporting problems caused by the oil that flooded the Gulf of Mexico. Sal Sunseri, co-owner of P&J Oyster Co. and co-founder of the New Orleans Oyster Festival talked with NoDef about the lingering effects.


'Week of Action' Precedes Big Oozy Birthday


Tis the season for lineup rollouts. But, amidst all of the festivals roster reveal, one somber schedule was released. April 20 marks the five year anniversary of the BP Oil Spill. A week of activities is scheduled preceding the Big Oozy’s birthday.


Feels Like Old Slime: NOFD Investigates Oil Slick on Lake


It’s not just rigs in the Gulf that spring leaks. An two square mile oil slick on Lake Ponchartrain elicited a quick response from the New Orleans Fire Department (NOFD) and The United States Coast Guard (USCG) this morning.


BP Wants Money Back from Claims


Even though the Supreme Court looking poised to parry BP's Big Oozy claim appeal, the British oil giant is looking at a new legal strategy to take some of its money back. In a motion filed Friday, the company asked a U.S. District Court Judge for restitution payments because of a change in the Deepwater Horizon claims process.


Study: BP Oil Slowed Fast Fish


Big Oozy oil slowed down one of the fastest fish in the Gulf, a new study shows. According to University of Miami researchers, oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster cut the ability of mahi mahi to swim by up to 37 percent. Along with impairing one of mahi mahi's key survival skills, a new study published in the journal of Environmental Science and Technology shows oil could have slowed other species of fish, as well.


Supreme Court: BP's Big Oozy Payouts Should Continue


Even though BP is trying to get the highest court in the land to weigh in on their claim appeal, the oil giant will still have to pay people who are eligible for Big Oozy losses and damages in the meantime. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that the claims process set out by a 2012 settlement with Gulf Coast businesses and indviduals could continue while BP prepared their case.


Oil Spill in Delta National Wildlife Refuge, Feds Plan Controlled Burn


More than 2,000 gallons of oil spilled in the Delta National Wildlife Refuge last week, and crews are set to burn the oil off the marshy area Tuesday. The oil, which was discovered during an overflight on May 28, leaked from a pipeline buried below the marsh. The line is located about 10 miles southeast of Venice, and belongs to Houston-based Texas Petroleum Investment Company, according to a statement issued by the feds.


Court Denies BP's Big Oozy Claim Appeal


At least for now, BP's claim crusade is stalled in federal court. The U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals decided Monday not to rehear the British oil giant's imploring about the process by which Gulf Coast businesses can receive money from the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster settlement reached in 2012.
