BP seeking to get back Gulf Oil Spill Payouts

BP is trying to get back some of the money it paid out to businesses and individuals under the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill settlement. BP’s attorneys are claiming, “a wrong was done” and that the settlement does not preclude BP from seeking restitution for overpayments. Attorneys representing the more than 790 businesses involved  claim that those who receive settlement payments had a right to expect that they could keep the money and get on with their lives.
