These videos were filmed prior to the proposed settlement by the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC). As a result of that proposed settlement, the Gulf Coast Claims Fund (GCCF) has been moved under the PSC’s control and the term GCCF is no longer used.

All of the information provided in these videos is still accurate and applicable to the PCS fund (which as of this writing has not been given a formal name).
