BP Asks Oil Spill Claims Process Be Suspended Based on "New Evidence" of Fraud

Has tried before


Citing what it calls new evidence, BP asked again to suspend oil spill claims payments until court-appointed Special Master Louis Freeh completes his investigation of allegations of fraud in the claims process.

In a second attempt to stop payments until Freeh's review is complete, BP claims it has found new evidence of improper conduct in the Court Supervised Settlement Program (CCSP).
