The administrator of BP’s $20 billion Gulf oil-spill fund announced new rules Friday on how final payments will be determined in the highly criticized claims process, but the central payment formula remained unchanged from a proposal released earlier this month.http://www.sunherald.com/2011/02/18/2877075/feinberg-announces-new-final-payment.html
Kenneth Feinberg, the Washington lawyer who oversees the fund, said in a news release he’ll begin making payments based on the rules.
He’s been criticized about the size and pace of payments.
In a democracy, you're suppose to adopt the rules before you commence the process.
That's what's called "due process".
