NEW ORLEANS, LA (NBC33) — People filing civil suits against BP will have to wait longer to go to court.
A U.S judge decided the civil trial will start in January of 2013.
The trial was supposed to start in November of this year.
The reason for the delay is for the judge to give final approval on a settlement that's been reached.
