The BP Settlement sent out it`s first Offers
It has been reported that over 1,110 BP Settlement offers went out Friday, this is big news. It looks as though The New BP Settlement Fund headed by Patrick Juneau and supervised by Judge Barbier are actually going to make sure the job gets done.
In our estimation they are ahead of schedule, there were a few errors in the beginning, but the numbers look promising.
The average BP Settlement offer was around 44k.
We are not jumping for joy just yet, but it is promising.

Is the BP Settlement going to be a Gulf Coast Stimulus Package
If you all remember the economic shape our region was in after the real estate bubble burst in 2006, 2007, 2008,and 2009, were tough years, it wasn`t till the beginning of 2010 that the Gulf Coast began to feel an uptick in the overall economy. The BP oil spill on 4/20/10 put an end to that recovery for many.
It would not be till mid 2012 that many would get the sense the economy was moving in the right direction again. The BP Settlement by many is looked at as a Gulf Coast Stimulus Package, and indeed it could serve as such for the businesses that survived, and make it right for the ones that did not.
In all reality the BP Oil Spill thwarted the comeback our economy was making in 2010, and should pay for what they did.
Quick Pays, Quick Pays, Quick Pays and the BP Settlement
We all know that Quick Pays have not been addressed in the BP Settlement, they need to be.
We have heard from more then 20,000 people and businesses since this site has been up, over 200,000 people took Quick Pays.
Quick Pays were presented under Feinberg, when we all expected Interim Claims to begin. Interim Claims would have paid people while the true extent of the damage was equated, Quick Pays, a mechanism that was never mentioned until Feinberg took over, became the standard.
They were a travesty, and many are feeling it now, especially the fishermen.
- Catches of Brown shrimp are down over 90%,
- Blue Crabs are dying on their way to the market,
- Oyster harvesters are harvesting just 15%-25% of what they would usually bring in.
- These people were the first target of the Quick Pays, and they are experiencing the greatest ramifications.
We have often been told that representatives of the GCCF would meet these people at the docks and tell them they needed to sign these documents to get the 25k or 5k from the GCCF, many did, not realizing that they gave up their rights to sue BP for future damages. Many business owners took the Quick Pay so they could stay in business or pay the mortgage. People were held economic hostages by the GCCF.
The BP Settlement or some other mechanism needs to address this. Quick Pays preyed upon people, Feinberg worked for BP, he proclaimed himself independent, it took a Judges order to stop him saying he was independent.
Doesn`t it make sense that a Claims Administrator declaring himself INPEPENDENT when in fact he was paid by BP, and starving people out, forcing them to take Quick Pays, caused more then just confusion.
Feinberg has caused an ongoing economic disaster for many, and it needs to be fixed.
