“Briet said he hasn’t heard from BP or its lawyers. He said the claims people have been given so much conflicting information about the process [getting paid] that they can’t provide answers. “They couldn’t tell me,” he said. “And I said, ‘I’ve got 500 people I’m meeting on Saturday. They want to know what the process is.”
We all know why this is happening. The Obama regime has extorted BP for $20 million and has taken control of that money. This regime does not want any Gulf Fishing nor do they want independent or self employed business people or any sort. Their independence makes them hard to control. They would rather have everyone dependent on the State.
GRAND ISLE, La. — Hundreds of fishermen from Lake Charles to Moss Point, Miss., were supposed to get checks from BP on Wednesday but didn’t.
Wednesday night, their lawyer wanted answers.
Jeffrey Briet represents more than 500 fishermen, and he said the payment system he set up with BP required his clients to be paid every 30 days. Now that process has suddenly changed without warning, Briet said. Source
