Effort to remove embattled Gulf Spill claims administrator who has presided over scandal, abuse & in

The Associated Press reports that BP filed a notice stating it plans to head back to federal appeals court in an effort to oust claims administrator Patrick Juneau.


U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier, who is overseeing a massive settlement stemming from the 2010 Gulf oil spill, rejected BP’s arguments against Juneau in an order last week.


Since being tapped to oversee the settlement program in 2012, Mr. Juneau has presided over several high profile scandals including the systemic payment of questionable claims and allegations of money laundering that caused several of his top officials to resign.


The program has also been plagued by stunning inefficiency, with administrative costs totaling more than $1 billion over the last two years.
