• BP’s bid for extra proof rejected


    NEW YORK: A US federal judge has rejected a bid from BP to require companies prove their losses are directly linked to     the 2010 massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill before getting a payout.

    The British energy giant last year reached a $7.8-billion settlement with thousands of people and businesses hit by the worst environmental disaster in US history.

    In the appeal, BP argued that some companies asking for payouts should have to show additional proof that their losses were directly linked to the oil spill.
