BP and Union Reaches Tentative Agreement

BP announced union and company negotiators had reached a tentative agreement to end the strike at BP's Whiting refinery that began Feb. 8. The union expanded its nationwide work stoppage to BP's refineries in Indiana and Ohio a week after it launched its initial round of strikes. BP is hoping union members will ratify the contract as soon as possible.

Jury Trials Approves for Medical Lawsuits over BP Oil Spill

Oil spill cleanup workers who sue BP for medical problems that surface later in life have the right to make their case before a jury, a federal judge has ruled. The BP oil spill medical settlement reached in 2012 was set up to pay cleanup workers and others who experienced certain illnesses during the immediate aftermath of the April 2010 disaster. The settlement was designed to keep medical claims out of the courtroom. But it left an option for claimants who later develop cancer or other chronic ailments they believe were spill-related to file a separate lawsuit against BP. U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier said April 27, 2015 that the settlement terms do not specify whether these so-called back-end litigation option cases must be tried before a judge or a jury. He also rejected BP's argument that maritime law bars jury trials in the oil spill medical cases.
