    To: Big Brother – you listening to this? Sounds like actionable intelligence for disbarrment & prosecution for fraud.

      The tragic part is that depending upon how poorly worded the settlement agreement is, McLean’s actions may well NOT be fraudulent. If it is within the parameters of the document, then shame on BP and their lawyers, and in this case not on McLean.

    Not sure their gross negligence justifies the paying of unrelated claims. You know, the old “two wrongs don’t make a right” concept. I’d rather more money go to cleanup than some undeserving real estate agent.

      You, of course are correct, two wrongs… My little grandson was diagnosed last week with autism and with absolutely no family history of this, and the recent rapid rise in autism, I’ve been blaming the environment.

    Well, of COURSE they’ll go after this! It’s because of all that “concern” {cough} they have for their clients! Put a cap on their fees, and miracles will happen!

    Well, lets see. Oil in the Gulf and on beaches…no tourists…no travel through towns during tourist seasons…lost income. There are scores of little towns and stops along certain highways that “beach traffic” travels. Even in my own county in South Alabama we saw a difference. Some of these little towns depend heavily on this traffic to pick up the business during the summer months. When the oil spill happened no one went to the beach. Dozens of stores closed and others were hurt economically from the lack of traffic. But the lawyers are just vultures, hovering and waiting for a new piece of meat to chew on and they found it with these businesses. The sad part of it is the ones who were truly hurt will either not see a dime or will not get enough after the lawyers get their cut to get them back to where they were before the spill.
