Bondi slams Feinberg over oil spill claims promises not kept

in Uncategorized by

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said this morning that oil spill claims administrator Kenneth Feinberg has failed to keep his promises of increasing transparency, paying claims promptly and sending more staff to the Gulf Coast to handle claims.

She said Feinberg told her in a meeting that he would begin paying claims this weekend, and dispatch local claims processors to Florida within 10 days. She recalled sitting in on a meeting with Feinberg in December when he promised to beef up his local staffs to help claimants navigate the process.
