BP Disaster Survivors Removed From Federal Courtroom during Fairness Hearing

Three BP oil disaster survivors and community advocates were forcibly removed from the fairness hearing on the BP class-action settlement yesterday, moments before the federal court heard objections to how that settlement would compensate people made sick by the disaster. The fairness hearing allowed U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier to hear arguments from those who negotiated the deal, as well as those with objections to the class action, before the settlement is accepted or rejected. http://bridgethegulfproject.com/node/713  Also from BP Oil critic http://bklim.newsvine.com/bp-oil-spill
