Federal Judge Approves $1 Billion BP Settlement With Cities, Counties And School Districts


Federal District Judge Carl Barbier on Monday approved BP’s $1 billion settlement with cities, counties and school districts and ordered that all payments be made within 30 days.

“It’s Christmas in July,” said Alan Dedeaux, superintendent of Hancock County School District, which will receive $500,000. The district hasn’t yet decided how to spend the money, but Dedeaux said the schools have needs and he and the school board are looking at the best way to use the half million dollars.
