A lawyer working for the court-appointed administrator to review claims as part of the multibillion-dollar settlement over BP's Gulf oil spill has been accused of receiving payments from a law firm representing a claimant, allegations that were discussed in a closed-door meeting Thursday, June 20, 2013, with a federal judge overseeing the case, a BP official with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press.
