- A court has agreed to fast-track an appeal from BP (BP) over the decision of U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier to reject the company's request to link compensation for the 2010 Gulf oil spill directly to the disaster.
- BP argues that Barbier has ignored a higher-court ruling in making his decision, so the oil provider has asked the appeals court to step in.
- BP has been battling with Barbier, lawyers for spill victims and settlement administrator Patrick Juneau for months over an interpretation of the agreement that allows payments for claimants without proof of causation.
