BP claimants denied extension on class action claim

Our New Orleans readers may remember the British Petroleum oil spill of 2010 as one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history. Although it's been nearly three years since the spill, the incident is still the subject of courtroom action. Recently, claimants who experienced damage to their seafood businesses in the disaster filed a motion with a federal court to extend the deadline to join a class action suit stemming from the accident. However, U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier was not in favor of extending the deadline for commercial fishing operations for this maritime disaster. Barbier contends that claimants were given sufficient notice in which to join the lawsuit before the deadline.
