Good news for the thousands who were affected by the spill and filed claims against BP.
More than 64 million dollars is headed their way.
That comes after an audit of the Gulf Coast claims facility shows seven thousand people were wrongfully denied.
The money is coming from BP's 20 billion dollar compensation fund.
The administrator Ken Feinberg has stepped down as the man in charge of paying the claims.
A Lafayette lawyer is now in charge.
People filing claims should get a check in the mail in less than two weeks.
