A federal judge has appointed Lafayette attorney to relieve Ken Feinberg.

Patrick Juneau will be the new Claims Administrator of the oil spill settlement program.

He calls the task “daunting,” but something that can be accomplished.

The move from Feinberg to Juneau is part of a proposed multibillion-dollar settlement between BP and plaintiffs' attorneys representing more than 100,000 individuals and businesses.

An attorney in Richmond, Virginia will also be part of the program.

BP settled out of court earlier this week.

The settlement is worth almost $8-million.
