BP wants $7.9 million claim for law firm disallowed, citing former FBI director's report

NEW ORLEANS - BP is pressing a federal court to disallow a $7.9 million Gulf oil spill claim awarded to a Louisiana law firm.

Friday's filing in New Orleans is the latest development in disputes involving the Andry Law Firm, BP and former FBI director Louis Freeh.

Freeh was appointed last year to investigate the claims process.

In a report last September, Freeh said he found evidence that attorney Jon Andry and others tried to corrupt the settlement process, using a lawyer on the staff of claims administrator Patrick Juneau.

Andry's lawyers have denied he did anything wrong. And they have questioned Freeh's impartiality. They note Freeh's acknowledged partnership at a law firm working on an unrelated case with lawyers for a firm representing BP.

Freeh re-asserted his allegations in his own filing Friday.
