TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—April 20, 2014 marked the four-year anniversary of the tragic Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, and Attorney General Pam Bondi met with Patrick Juneau, the court-appointed administrator of the class action settlement between the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee and BP, in her Tallahassee office on Wednesday to discuss individual and business economic loss claims. While Attorney General Bondi is representing the State of Florida for its economic losses due to the spill and unrelated to the class action settlement, she has been an ardent advocate on behalf of all Floridians who suffered personal financial losses as a result of the spill.
“In the four years since the tragic Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, I have advocated on behalf of our great state and its residents for losses suffered as a result of the spill, and yesterday's meeting with Mr. Juneau was productive. We discussed the impact of the delays in the claims process resulting from BP's court challenge, what is being done to ensure claims are being processed as quickly as possible, and what steps are being taken to prepare for prompt claims payments once BP's court challenge is resolved,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi.
“My commitment and goal has never changed. We are totally dedicated to implementing the Settlement Agreement. The input and suggestions we have received from Attorney General Pam Bondi and the State of Florida has been very helpful,” stated Mr. Patrick Juneau.
