NEW ORLEANS – A Terrebonne Parish corporation alleges that it suffered economic damages as a result of the Deepwater Horizon spill.

Juneau Marine Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Inc. filed a complaint on June 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against BP Exploration & Production Inc., Transocean LTD, Halliburton Energy Services Inc., et al. citing the Oil Pollution Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it submitted and satisfied the presentment requirements of its claim to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility and/or Deepwater Horizon Economic Claim Center but has yet to receive payment. 

The plaintiff holds BP Exploration & Production Inc., Transocean LTD, Halliburton Energy Services Inc., et al., responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to deny or settle plaintiff's claim within 90 days after the date upon which the claim was presented.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, plus interest, attorneys’ fees, costs of litigation and all other relief as the court deems just and appropriate. He is represented by Stanwood R. Duval of Duval, Funderburk, Sunbery, Richard & Watkins in Houma.
