NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A year ago, lawyers for BP and Gulf Coast residents and businesses took turns urging a federal judge to approve their settlement for compensating victims of the company's massive 2010 oil spill.

On Monday, the one-time allies will be at odds. Several months after U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier approved the deal, BP started complaining that the judge and court-appointed claims administrator misinterpreted the settlement. BP is worried it could be forced to pay billions of dollars for bogus or inflated claims by businesses.

Plaintiffs' attorneys who brokered the deal disagree. They want the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the class-action settlement.

As of Friday, payments have been made to more than 38,000 people and businesses for an estimated $3.7 billion.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Officials say the suspect in the Los Angeles International Airport shootings had a lot of ammunition as well as a note indicating a grudge against TSA agents and "pigs."

A source says the note talked about TSA searches being violations of his constitutional rights.

Officials say the gunman, identified as Paul Ciancia of Pennsville, N.J., had at least 150 rounds of ammunition when he opened fire, killing a TSA agent and wounding several people as others in the panicked terminal ran for cover. Two other TSA employees are among the wounded.

The dead man, 39-year-old Gerardo I. Hernandez, is the first TSA agent to die in the line of duty.

The gunman was shot four times by police and is in custody at a hospital.

MIAMI (AP) — Millions of people across the country are trying to figure out what to do after receiving notices that their individual health insurance policies are being discontinued because they don't meet higher benefit requirements of the federal Affordable Care Act.

They can buy different policies directly from insurers for 2014 or sign up for plans on their state exchange. While lower-income people could see lower costs because of generous government subsidies, many middle-class families and individuals are likely to get a rude awakening when they access the websites and realize they'll have to pay significantly more for health insurance.

Those not eligible for subsidies generally will receive more comprehensive coverage than they had under their soon-to-be-canceled policies, but they'll also have to pay a lot more for it.
