With our complaint sitting at the justice department. Recent claimed settlements passed out again along with that held amount to pay for the next ruling, it does the soul good to see the degree of involvement by this agency[DOJ]and Gaylord’s parent company Temple Inland. The view from the void is. Anyone taking part in this clearly wrong and unlawful right to denying action against a sinister court and unlawful enrichment, deserves whatever can be said for their actions or any like of. No doubt all this money from the Gaylord release could have served a better purpose. Oh well. Let’s meet the newest players in regards to any action ever taken. Amazing wouldn’t the DOJ be aware of all matters related herein?
The United States Department of Justice (often referred to as the Justice Department or DOJ), is the United States federal executive department responsible for the enforcement of the law and administration of justice, equivalent to the justice or interior ministries of other countries.The Department is led by the Attorney General. Confirmed by the Senate and a member of the Cabinet. The current Attorney General is Eric Holder.
who is nominated by the President.
Might as well act like everyone else about the clown show coming out of Washington these days. These a lot of complaining with some having a legal cause. Just like everyone who comes in contact with Temple Inland the DOJ couldn’t help being left out of the corporate loop of Temple Inland’s business affairs. Hum, I’ve always wondered the legal connection of manufacture DMSO and Temple and that bankruptcy threat. I would bet it’s quite direct. As well these rights violated. Here’s the latest on Temple Inland.
As Temple-Inland continues to address issues raised after the massive fish kill caused by mill discharge on the Pearl River last August, in order to meet approaching Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality compliance deadlines, it was announced last week that the company’s merger with International Paper has been pushed back.
T-I and IP announced that they have “agreed with the U.S. Department of Justice to extend the review period for their pending merger until January 27, 2012,” according to a joint press release. The companies had previously agreed with the DOJ to wait until Dec. 31 to finalize the matter. We continue to cooperate with the Department of Justice and look forward to satisfying the closing conditions for the completion of this transaction,” said International Paper Senior Vice President and General Counsel Sharon Ryan.
The companies also agreed to extend the outside date under their merger agreement from June 6 to June 28, 2012. On Sept. 6, after rejecting two previous offers, T-I’s board agreed to an IP takeover bid of $32 per share, about 5 percent higher than the company’s initial bid. The deal also calls for IP to assume $600 million in T-I debt, bringing the total value to $4.3 billion.
On Dec. 7, T-I shareholders approved the sale, reportedly with more than 98 percent of the shares voting in favor.Still, since the acquisition would give the combined company about 40 percent of the corrugated packaging materials market in North America, federal antitrust regulators must sign off on the acquisition before it becomes official.If the merger is finalized, T-I will reportedly become a wholly owned subsidiary of IP. The company has indicated that it does not intend to close the Bogalusa plant.For now, T-I is due to present plans, designs and specifications and to begin some construction at the local facility for various improvements and upgrades established by the LADEQ as conditions of its reopening after the fish kill.
What’s this? – Ah, the folks working in Mississippi government don’t know which money taken in by the state can be had for their use and which cannot. $20 million was all we wanted. What did the federal government go through for this? Anyway being told to leave certain money alone?

UPDATE: Carl, wants his cut! Recall an earlier post which stated all the funds and fun from the BP. oil spill was down Florida way! Ruling in our matters Carl knows what gives.
The Gulf Coast Claims Facility is suspending payments to individuals and businesses for BP losses until U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier clarifies an order in a federal litigation pending against the company.BP is asking Barbier to reconsider his order that Gulf Coast Claims Facility claimants must contribute 6 percent of any settlement to an account that will eventually compensate plaintiff’s lawyers involved in federal litigation against the oil giant. Judge Barbier, who is presiding over the multi-jurisdictional litigation, ordered the account for legal expenses established Dec. 28. Barbier said the 6 percent litigation fee would need to be deducted from each gross settlement reached with GCCF claimants on or after Nov. 7.
BOOM! UPDATE: legal expenses? We know it take years and years to help get the victims of these lawsuits money, but this is the attorneys and the courts wanting their money. So how long might that take?
NEW ORLEANS — Payments to those damaged by BP’s massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico resumed Wednesday, a day after administrators of the $20 billion fund stopped the flow of money, saying they were unclear on how to assess a 6 percent fee for lawyers handling claims.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier said payments made after Dec. 30 would have to include a 6 percent fee for trial lawyers affiliated with a steering committee helping plaintiffs with oil spill litigation against BP PLC. The Gulf Coast Claims Facility said it froze payments on Tuesday in response to the Dec. 28 ruling that said disbursements made on and after Nov. 7, 2011, should include the fee.
