DHECC - One big happy family

BP drops attempt to oust oil spill claims administrator

This shouldn't surprise anyone.  BP now has nothing to gain by getting rid of the guy that's helping them fucksnu' the remaining claimants.  If you haven't read the comment section should.

Here's a poignant comment from In-Hale:

Killing the clock !!

It saddens me to report that it’s now clear the court vendors are doing BP’s bidding.

The court vendors continue to make errors that trigger incomplete and incomplete denials notices on BEL claims. I have reported these errors but it appears they are now intentional. The denials found on table 4 have grown 10 times faster since the injunction was lifted, now surpassing the amount of unique claimants paid. 

They are now killing all claims with Policy 495 and intend to run out the clock dated for June 8th 2015. 

All determination above the $25,000 dollar threshold will be appealed and then appealed again under Court Discretionary Review currently we have 202 pending.

You can watch these numbers grow on your current stat report table 6 line 12.

If you have a pending BEL claim thank your PSC members for allowing you to participate in the biggest scam. They think the settlement is great and will give you $600 million reasons why.

(The following 12/23/14 "statement" on BP's website will probably be replaced soon with something like: 'Never mind; we're all good.')

"BP’s Statement on its Opening Brief in the Claims Administrator Removal Appeal

BP presented the District Court with extensive, recently uncovered evidence that Mr. Juneau actively advocated against BP’s interests and litigated against BP in this very case as part of his work for the state of Louisiana in 2010 and 2011. That work is a clear and serious conflict of interest – one that Mr. Juneau failed to disclose properly and that disqualifies him from serving as Claims Administrator. Further, Mr. Juneau’s gross mismanagement of the settlement program – which has resulted in poor performance, ethical violations among the program’s leadership, and wasteful administrative costs that have risen to more than $40 million per month – is well documented and separately warrants his removal. The settlement agreement requires the District Court to ensure that the Claims Administrator is impartial and that he administers the settlement trust properly. The Court’s refusal to remove Mr. Juneau should be reversed."

Appeal stats class 101 is open.

The Real Number of Appeals Resolved is 385.

Daily stats table 6 p. 4

Line 1. These are appeals assigned to a panelist that are resolved currently 2,032

But wait line 7 had 1,1441 returned for review under policy 495 so the true number is only 591 appeals resolved.

But wait line 12 has 206 that BP filed Discretionary Review so the real number of claims resolved in appeals is 385.

Line 7 Return for Review Under Policy 495 list 1441 these claims as reported on this site equaled $795 million.

Line 12 will list appeals now Under Discretionary Review currently 206 up by 4 in the last two days.

Would someone like to prove me wrong?

Let's make this interesting. One year until Pat Juneau "voluntarily" retires. Over or under?
I will start with 1 vote for under.

Not sure you are reading that table correctly, but either way I am certain that a stats class taught by you would be a good time.

If you want to prove yourself wrong (or right?) you could scroll down on the same page and click Appeal Panel Decisions I through XVII and start counting.

Why isn’t BP bellyaching about Admin expense?

Taken from the Discretionary Review Notice. Unlike the appeals these are not numbered page 2 of 17.

Currently we have 27,340 offers made to the Coastal Property owners with 20,745 Unique Claimants required to sign a release.

Here’s the game once you sign the release you have 6 months to file all other claims. The delays and changing requirements for rental properties have ran out the clock for most of these claimants all by design. These claimants will never see a penny for the lost rental income caused by the spill.

This is the first DC ruling; now watch the Other Denials numbers grow as these claimants learn about deadlines.

Patrick the PSC and the Court Vendors saved every dollar these guys charged BP to administrate the settlement plus billions more.

“The Program denied this claim twice. The Appeal Panel reversed, finding that a claimant may file multiple Coastal Real Property claims for the same property. Here, claimant filed a Coastal Real Property claim with the CSSP in August 2013, was compensated and signed a CSSP Release. The CSSP Release was executed as required by the Settlement Agreement (see Section and Exhibit 26). Once that was done, no further Coastal Real Property claims as to that parcel of real property can be processed. The CSSP Release effects a release of all of the claimant's potential claims save and except for the limited right to assert "additional claims" within six (6) months as provided in Section 4.4.8 of the Settlement Agreement. The Court finds that the reference to "additional claims" in Section 4.4.8 does not include claims of the same claim type relative to the same parcel of land. Thus, a second Coastal Real Property Claim may not be processed and paid on this property. This is how the Claims Administrator has consistently interpreted and applied the Settlement Agreement and the Court agrees with that interpretation.”
