HOUSTON, March 1, 2012 – The family-owned Sudie’s Catfish & Seafood, Inc. has successfully resolved its claim related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon incident and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, The Buzbee Law Firm announced today.
Sudie’s, a seafood restaurant offering catering and banquet facilities, resolved its claim through the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) with no lawsuit filing, no time-consuming depositions, and significantly lower legal fees and costs than if the case had been litigated.
Attorneys Tony Buzbee and Caroline Adams, of The Buzbee Law Firm in Houston, represent Sudie’s.
Paul Bailey, the owner of Sudie’s restaurants, said, “This process was a win-win for all involved. Our lawyers and the GCCF found a sensible resolution without litigation. We value our relationships with BP and the oil and gas industry and want to extend our thanks to them and the GCCF for their responsiveness. We’re happy to refocus our efforts on serving delicious seafood and homemade Southern dishes.”
Tony Buzbee, of The Buzbee Law Firm, said, “By working through the GCCF, the Bailey family paid less in attorney’s fees and resolved the claim in less time than if they had pursued litigation. There’s a time and place for litigation, but the GCCF resolved the claim quicker and at a lower cost. We were pleased to assist Mr. Bailey and his family.”
Opened in 1983, Sudie’s is a family-oriented chain of family-owned restaurants – Sudie’s Catfish House in Pasadena and Sudie’s Seafood House in League City.
