Great news in our long running consumer fraud class action against BP. We scored a big win in the Oregon Court of Appeals. The court affirmed the trial court and the verdict in all respects. That’s to say we won big. BP has announced that they will ask the Oregon Supreme Court to review the case. The Oregon Supreme Court does not have to take the appeal. My guess is that we’ll know by the end of the year whether the Oregon Supreme Court is going to review the case.
Meanwhile, we soldier on. If you need solace about the delay, here is something that will brighten your day. Our judgment is over $400 million. It earns interest at $100,000 per day. So if the delay gets you down, just know that BP is paying a ton of cash for taking the long way.
We’ll let you know more when have more news to report. Meantime, keep the faith.
