SAN FRANCISCO, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Law Finance Group ("LFG") continues to fund attorneys who are navigating the BP Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program.   Eighteen months after the District Court approved the Settlement, legal wrangling remains in the way of payments to claimants.  LFG recognizes the effort and financial commitment required to bring claims to fruition, and can help those working on behalf of injured claimants bridge the gap to portfolio monetization.

In the interest of its class members, the Plaintiffs Steering Committee is challenging Policy 495 as adopted by the District Court.  This important effort to maximize recovery may delay payment, and no doubt the ultimate implementation of matching principles will require additional scrutiny and more work for the vast majority of claims.  In addition, BP's legal maneuvers against the Settlement persist.  Despite the U.S. Supreme Court's recent denial of BP's request to re-impose a stay on payments of economic loss claims, the prospect of a petition for certiorari remains.  "We are pleased with the Supreme Court ruling.  This certainly will start the ball rolling again.  Unfortunately, the process is sill a long way off from being resolved, and the Settlement itself continues to be at risk," said Alan Zimmerman, LFG's CEO.  "We remain committed to seeing this through to the end."
