BP class action settlement gains preliminary approval, Jones tells WSFA TV12 news

Beasley Allen attorney Rhon Jones talked with WSFA TV12 news about the latest development in litigation involving the BP oil spill, which affected thousands of people throughout the Gulf Coast region. A federal judge granted preliminary approval to two class action settlements, which should resolve more than 100,000 claims from businesses and individuals who say they were harmed by the massive oil spill, which erupted in the Gulf Of Mexico in April 2010. Jones served on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee, which worked on the consolidated litigation. He says the settlement will allow folks affected by the spill to have their claims paid in a “fair, efficient, transparent process.” Judge Carl Barbier, who has been overseeing the litigation, issued preliminary approval orders for the Medical Settlement Class and the Economic & Property Damage Settlement Class.
