After reading what I could find on the web I came across your site and wonder if you can explain what or who is the PSC.

I guess I’m what they call a member and extremely upset with the attorney’s that took this away from Gccf. My claim was about to be paid when I received a notice that the whole thing was going to change and they would contact me with a list of additional documents. I’ve submitted my claim over a year ago and after receiving request after request for more documents they still haven’t paid me.

Anon-

The Plaintiff's Steering Committee is a group of attorneys assigned by Judge Carl Barbier to lead the process of handling damage claims from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. They also get a larger share of the legal fees for the settlement.

PSC mwembers include Brian H. Barr, Jeffrey A. Breit, Elizabeth J. Cabraser, Philip F. Cossich, Jr., Robert T. Cunningham, Alphonso Michael Espy, Calvin C. Fayard, Jr., Robin L. Greenwald, Ervin A. Gonzalez, Rhon E. Jones, Matthew E. Lundy, Michael C. Palmintier, Paul M. Sterbcow. Scott Summy, and Mikal C. Watt.

As Jason has done an excellent job of covering, the PSC has engaged is some dubious practices that call the integrity of the entire settlement process into question. I'd encourage you to read the full American Zombie archives for details.

Nagin Defense Fund is real? I thought it was an internet meme when I saw it posted on FB. I laughed and continued on with my day, but now find that this is a real thing? Wow.
