WASHINGTON: ‘ U.S SUPREME COURT REJECTS BP’S CHALLENGE OVER GULF OF MEXICO OIL SPILL ‘

#AceNewsServices – WASHINGTON:Dec.09 – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected BP‘s challenge to its multi-billion-dollar settlement agreement over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which the oil giant complained has allowed certain businesses to get payouts despite being unable to trace their losses to the disaster.

The court’s decision not to hear the London-based company’s appeal is the latest setback for BP, which is trying to limit payments over a disaster that killed 11 people and triggered the largest U.S. offshore oil spill.

The court’s action, disclosed in an unsigned order, means BP will have to make the payments as it continues to deal with the spill’s aftermath.
