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.
Big Oozy's Pelican Death Toll Questioned
by Bob Marshall, The Lens
Almost from the start wildlife advocates described the Deepwater Horizon oil spill as a war on the Gulf ecosystem. Few quibbled with that analogy as a record 210 million gallons spewed into the Gulf just 50 miles from one of the world’s most productive coastal estuaries.
Gulf Wildlife Still Feeling Oily Impacts, Report Says
Deepwater Horizon oil may be buried these days, but the the Big Oozy's potential effects on wildlife are beginning to materialize on the surface. According to a new report released to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the Gulf oil disaster, the Macondo well's oil could be making its way up the marine life food chain.
Barrier Island Restoration Project Gets Go-Ahead
The Big Oozy brought oil to the Louisiana coast, but it's also bringing money for coastal restoration. Starting this summer, the latest evidence is expected to be on view in Lafourche Parish. On Thursday, The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation signed off on a $144.5 million restoration project in the Caminada Headland.
Study: Big Oozy Caused Heart Problems in Tuna
The latest scientific study about the effects of the Big Oozy goes right to the heart. Crude oil that flowed from the Deepwater Horizon in 2010 is causing "severe defects" in the developing hearts of two varieities of large, predatory tuna, according to the paper, which was released this week by a team of scientists from NOAA and other agencies.
Tropical Storm Karen Uncovers Oil at Fourchon Beach, Grand Isle
Tropical Storm Karen didn't make it to South Louisiana, but her stalled engine did leave some oil behind. U.S. Coast Guard crews found a one-ton tar mat that was uncovered by the storm's currents on Fourchon Beach, according to Petty Officer Michael Anderson. On other coastal beaches in Louisiana, crews found about 500 pounds of tarballs scattered along 15 miles of shore.
Court Orders Pause in BP's Big Oozy Payouts
After many motions and many more TV commercials, BP found some sympathetic judges on Thursday. Two out of three judges on the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals found merit to the oil company's argument that too many claims might be going to people who were unaffected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster. As a result, the judges told the U.S. District Court to do some quick sewing to button up the potentially fraudulent claims.

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.
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.
