Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, on the B.P. legal climate, "Our network of attorneys –who have all spoken under the condition of anonymity- believe that B.P. is 'dead in the water' with their appeal since they had a team of competent lawyers who helped draft the agreement, negotiated it, and ultimately signed the landmark settlement. To now ask for a 'do over' is almost comical in the legal community.""Moreover, some also think B.P. is now playing a dangerous game of chicken by essentially reneging on the settlement agreement and causing additional undue economic damages to businesses who are in desperate need for this money today. It is not a far reach to think that these business owners may start to urge their State A.G. to bring new charges of Fraud against B.P. by signing a document under false pretenses if B.P. continues its questionable legal tactics," added Janish.
