Gulf spill fund czar paying for ethics advice

By HARRY R. WEBER

NEW ORLEANS — The administrator of the $20 billion compensation fund for Gulf oil spill victims is using money from the fund to pay a legal ethics professor for a letter saying he’s independent from BP.

A spokeswoman for the Gulf Coast Claims Facility told The Associated Press on Thursday that fund czar Ken Feinberg has agreed to pay New York University professor Stephen Gillers for a letter he produced stating that Feinberg is neutral and not subject to BP’s direction or control.

Spokeswoman Debra DeShong Reed wouldn’t say how much Gillers is being paid.

Feinberg has come under fire from some victims, lawyers and Gulf state officials who have questioned Feinberg’s independence and suggested he is a pawn in a BP effort to limit its liability.

    I found out about a health clinic on the southern Gulf Coast of Florida that has a biological detox remedy for the chemicals and organism from the BP Oil Disaster. There is hope for those affected. Just thought I would get the word out to help. You can find them at gulfoilspillremedy.com
