BP lauded a decision by a federal court in New Orleans to approve the medical-benefits portion of the firm's $7.8 billion claims settlement for the April 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. The court decision was "another critical step forward for BP in meeting its commitment to economic and environmental restoration efforts in the Gulf and in eliminating legal risk facing the company," said company spokesman Geoff Morrell.
