Louisiana, US District Court, Eastern District - The Law Firm of Brent Coon & Associates today filed a motion to “re-notice” the class settlement – meaning, to ask the court to send notice to all participating businesses and individuals, making them aware that they would have the opportunity to leave (opt-out of) the settlement should they wish to pursue other legal remedies. Currently, only a very small percentage of people have been paid through the class and members of the class do not have the right to leave nor to seek further legal options as the class settlement required them to forfeit their right to sue BP.
