BP Claim Submission Deadline Extended

By David Schexnaydre, Esq.

The Deepwater Horizon Settlement Claims Administrator has confirmed that April 22, 2014, is no longer the deadline to file non-seafood claims against the BP Oil Spill Settlement Fund. The deadline will be six months after the Effective Date, which is defined as (1) the date upon which all appellate courts of jurisdiction affirm the District Court's Final Approval Order, or deny such an appellate petition, such that no future appeal is possible, or (2) the date otherwise agreed upon by BP and Class Counsel.

Since the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals has not yet ruled on BP's Petition for Rehearing En Banc, and since BP and Class Counsel have not otherwise agreed on an Effective Date, the Claims Administrator has made clear that the six month countdown to a deadline for filing claims has not yet begun.
