The administrator of the $20 billion compensation fund for Gulf oil spill victims is not independent from BP and must stop telling potential claimants that he is, a federal judge said in a ruling Wednesday that…cuts at the heart of one of Feinberg’s central arguments that because he’s independent people…should trust his decisions. Barbier said … Continue reading “Judge Barbier rocks! Rules “claims czar not independent of BP””

Strike up the band – Judge Vance’s Order calls the dance and “rocks” on Rockwell (a Branch qui tam update)

It’s been almost six months since SLABBED published Shall we dance? (March 2010), a post reporting Magistrate Shushan’s Order that granted in-part only the Branch Consultant’s Motion for leave to file a Second Amended Complaint (SAC) – so long that most have likely forgotten the big news of Shushan’s Order was what she denied and … Continue reading “Strike up the band – Judge Vance’s Order calls the dance and “rocks” on Rockwell (a Branch qui tam update)”

Monday Music House of Pain Edition: Shamrocks and Shenanigans as we check political hack Debbie Villio out of our "Warren" suite here at the Do Slabb Inn.

Debbie dear, whatever it is that causes folks (using their real names) to call you a “skank” here on Slabbed can be corrected IMHO. Meantime Newell, Paul and the gang could not push you over the top. Certain media outlets may be intimidated by good poll numbers but not such evidently mattered not in the end to … Continue reading “Monday Music House of Pain Edition: Shamrocks and Shenanigans as we check political hack Debbie Villio out of our "Warren" suite here at the Do Slabb Inn.”

Meantime Rick gave us the backstory on the change at Bay City prosecutor. And that just scratches … Continue reading “Been away on business…….”

Reader mailbag: Has the Sun Herald lost its mind?

The answer to that question from my perspective is no. They’re in the business of selling papers and to the extent people have read the Scott and Trinity Walker PR series and are talking about it I’d say they are fulfilling the core mission of a news media organization.
