This week’s episode of The Beasley Allen Report is guest-hosted Parker Miller, an attorney in Beasley Allen’s Toxic Torts section. He welcomes Rhon Jones, head of the firm’s Toxic Torts section, who has been involved in the BP Oil Spill litigation from the very beginning. Jones is a member of the Plaintiffs Steering Committee for the consolidated multidistrict litigation. He is also part of the class counsel team, which negotiated and presented the settlement agreement to Judge Carl Barbier, who is overseeing the litigation in Federal District Court in New Orleans. Claims are already being paid under the terms of the settlement agreement. Of the settlement, Jones says he believes, “it does the most good for the most people in the shortest amount of time.” The settlement was reached just a little more than two years after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank off the coast of Louisiana in April 2010, setting off a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Almost any business in any part of the state of Alabama may qualify for compensation under the terms of the settlement agreement.
