Plaintiffs Attorneys Knock BP Fund Administrator, Daily Business Review, July 26, 2010:
[Marathon fisherman Nilo Hernandez] said tarballs don’t have to wash up in Key West for the environmental impact of the spill to be felt in Florida Bay… “It’s definitely contaminated now. How much will have to be determined,” Hernandez said. …
The anger of Keys residents over the spill was apparent when BP set up a claims office across the street from the Marathon airport, Hernandez said. “People went over there, and they wanted to kill them.” The claims office has brought in security.
